6/2/2007 - Ingredients the Band
The Ingredients sound is one that is not easily defined. The term indie rock gets thrown around quite a bit, but it doesn't really do the band justice. Drawing on a vast array of influences and inspirations, Ingredients has created a sound that is both eclectic and unique, yet very accessible. Eugene Weekly readers agree, voting Ingredients Best Local Rock Band in their Best of Eugene awards for 2006. Ingredients is renowned for their exciting, energetic, and fun-filled live performances - jumping off the walls, smashing guitars, and running out into the audience like maniacs, while still delivering a top-notch musical performance. Anyone who has been to an Ingredients show, enveloped in a rabid pack of sweaty Ingredients fans, knows that the band makes quite a spectacle of themselves on stage. With such a multitude of captivating facets, Ingredients is clearly not just another band. They possess many qualities which are rare in today's music industry: artistic integrity without pretense, an intuitive ability to connect with their audience, and an eclectic mix of truly original music. But what is even more striking about this band is that they are able to accomplish all of these things almost effortlessly. After all, Ingredients is simply doing what comes naturally to them, and they do it well. Come to CD World on Saturday, June 2nd at 3pm, and check out Ingredients for yourself.
