The Very Most is an indie-pop band from Boise, Idaho. It''s quite possible they''re the only indie-pop band from Boise, Idaho. Like almost every band, they exist both live and on record. But for the Very Most, the process of recording happens over years, as Jeremy, with an assembled cast of talented friends, carefully constructs layers upon layers of guitar, bass, drums, strings, percussion, woodwinds, synths, vocals and sound effects in a backyard studio. Their music is dense, catchy, and has a decidedly un-hip, yet slightly off-kilter, lyrical viewpoint. It’s kind of a like being the only adult at a little kids’ dance party where you get to choose the music, but the kids make you spin them around until everyone’s really dizzy. Influences include Beach Boys, Built to Spill, Smiths, and Belle and Sebastian.
Congratulations Forever is the second record by The Very Most, and expands greatly on the previous album, Making the Case For Me. It has beautifully designed and printed album artwork designed and illustrated by Julia Green.
