A festive union

A review of last week’s album release show for Exile is featured in this week’s edition of the Boston Phoenix.

Michael Marotta caught up with Aloud’s Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa immediately after their “harmonious-yet-boisterous” set at Church to talk about the recent successful Kickstarter campaign, the upcoming national tour, and the months of couch surfing that await the band.

The performance had a spirited, carnival-like atmosphere, with Beguiristain at one point jumping on a pool table across the room to shout lyrics back at the stage through a megaphone. Aloud’s harmonious-yet-boisterous psychedelic pop-rock sound was often augmented by the ambient strings of the Exile Orchestra. And an unplugged, off-stage, Beatles-medley jamboree-like sing-along with the band surrounded by the crowd closed out their set as the lights came up.

Don’t forget, next week (Tuesday, October 5th) is Aloud’s listening party for Exile at Enormous Room in Cambridge, which is also doubling as the video release for the first single “Old Soldier”. Henry will be DJing throughout the night with Exile producer Daniel Nicholas Daskivich. Cover is a low $3. Kickstarter backers and their guests get in free!
