Communist Daughter

A few years ago John Solomon walked away from music. After a long struggle with addiction and a brief stint in jail he broke up his critically acclaimed band Friends Like These and moved to a small town in Wisconsin. And supposedly that was that.

Even though Solomon left music, music never left him. After a long hiatus, he called some friends to come to Wisconsin and demo up a new album….

Solomon and company have already started to reclaim their spot in music with favorable reviews from critics all over that remember Solomon and company from Friends Like These.

A re-energized Solomon has assembled a band worth taking note of now.

• “Not the Kid,” on the Current

• “Speed Of Sound,” from a recent show

What Other People Have Been Saying...

“Fragile, daydreaming harmonies. Swirling synths that spin and spin until they fall down dizzy. Steady-galloping drums that coolly pass you by. These Midwestern boys have wrapped them all up into rip-your-heart out ballads about getting older but not necessarily happier – songs that capture the old joy of classic records and do-nothing days, and the ache of knowing they’re mostly gone. Yes, there’s a good kind of sadness, and this is what it sounds like.” -Melissa Maerz, Rolling Stone Magazine
