From Jake's report of day 5 of the CMJ Music Marathon 2014: "Next was one of my main highlights, "Grass Is Green," also from Boston, whose album, "Vacation Vinny," has been on repeat in my room for the last couple weeks. Grass is Green reminds me of Kal Marks in that they go to very unexpected places in their songs, dipping into no-wave influenced jams. They've got the signature EIS distorted bendy thing that all the bands do with their guitars (see Kal Marks, Krill, Ovlov, Pile….they all do it!), another indicator that all of these bands wholly embrace their influences. Sometimes they remind me of Primus (again. I just really love Primus, ok!), other times it's Dinosaur Jr., but regardless of what they sound like, they have an uniquely aggressive energy. They killed it that night, it was an epic performance.
