Let It Grow
The Meligrove Band, now all 23 years old, are three best friends who were the only kids in their high school with a love for the Canadian indie rock scene of the mid-1990s. Since the release of the Stars & Guitars CD on Ductape Records ('a pretty irresistible debut' - Exclaim!) in 2000, The Meligrove Band have been named one of that year's best live shows in Toronto by Eye. The Meligrove Band have built their reputation on a live show so energetic, it often borders on chaos, resulting in drumkits knocked over and mic stands on the floor. Let it Grow is the band's second full-length, recorded in their homes over three months in the spring of 2002 by Stephen Pitkin, drummer of The Flashing Lights. The new album is a deliberately eclectic effort, with the addition of keyboards, brass, wind instruments, and even an alarm clock.
