Hailing from the warm shores of California, five-piece band The Gromble make a charming blend of orchestral alt-folk and indie rock, honed live supporting acts like The Lemonheads. With the classic intensity of early greats Pavement, Weezer and Neutral Milk Hotel and a taste for the heartland classics, they arrive somewhere between Grouplove, Miniature Tigers and Vampire Weekend – and they take their name from Nickelodeon’s Aaahh!!! Real Monsters – a perfect indicator of their unashamed love for 90s pop culture and for the sense of humour that runs beneath the surface of their songs.
My name is Charles Brownstein and I was born in Montreal, Quebec. I presently live in Vancouver, BC.I am a true lover of music, food, books, film, and stand-up comedy. Foremost it is music that I love, that is what drove me to create this site. I confess to liking Duran Duran and the Bee gees in my youth.I prefer In Utero to Nevermind and safe as milk instead of Trout Mask Replica.Northern Transmissions is a Music website that features interviews from musicians and bands we love. We have interviewed so many of them, from The Drums to Destroyer. We review albums by from many labels around the world, including Merge, Sub pop, Bella union, Matador, 4AD, Rough Trade, Capture Tracks, Hardly Art, and many many more.Hope you guys enjoy the website as much as we like working on it.
