A BIG YES... and a small no
Artist / Band / Musician
Indie / Folk Rock / Shoegaze
After surviving a kidnapping in Colombia, a heroin addiction, and a trial after being falsely accused of Felony Assault with a Deadly Weapon, on a Police Officer, Kevin Kendrick decided that life was too short to keep denying his true love of pop music, and once and for all abandoned his classical and jazz upbringing to start Brooklyn-based A Big Yes and a small no. Calling on his former band mates from the critically acclaimed Fat mama, he, Jonathan Goldberger, Sir Joe Russo, Erik Deutsch, and Jonti Siman assembled a group hailed as "the hippest pop band you've ever heard in your life" by Village Voice critic Richard Gehr, and released Jesus That Looks Terrible On You in May of 2008 to much critical success and heavy college radio play.
"What makes this album great is its clever lyrics that teeter on the brink of novelty, but sustain multiple listenings without wearing out the joke."
- Emily Hulme, AM NY
"A freak-jazz ghost haunts one of the dandiest new pop groups you'll hear this year."
- Richard Gehr (The Village Voice)
"Their debut tip-toes schizophrenically through jazz, pop, indie and ska with the comfort of an outfit who've been playing their trade for a decade or two but the vibrancy of one only just getting started."
- PopMatters (7 out of 10)
"Every track is immensely enjoyable, with smart and funny lyrics, and well-crafted melodies. It's a feel-good album that's not afraid to take listeners down into the dumps."
- (5 stars) PopSyndicate
"Like great pop music from Burt Bacharach to Brian Wilson, the virtuosity is designed to be hidden and seem effortless." - Chris Parker, BLURT (ex HARP)
