MP3 Milly Beau - Party Glitter
Broken soul thrash. The debut album from Milly Beau is lit with harmonized female vocals cutting a sparse, yet cinematic backdrop of electric low-fi racket meets pop rock, evoking thoughts of smoky 1920s jazz melodies set at against early 90''s teen angst.

Rising Indie Evening @ Nuyorican ft. Milly Beau
“You may remember a few weeks back I interviewed KR friends Exit Clov in anticipation of their East Coast tour and some of their rockin’ new music. They performed at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly with a relatively unknown group called Milly Beau (recently signed to Greenhouse Records). (I came in to the concert thinking Milly Beau was a person – really did not know much, nor did I expect much.) But boy, was I in for a huge surprise. Milly Beau is fronted by the incredibly talented MaryBeth Doran, just a year removed from George Washington University in D.C. (loving this D.C. NYC connection.) Her voice is stunningly gorgeous; I can’t describe it any other way (I’m telling you, I was blown away.) And while she could easily sit back and let her vocals do all the work with some simple songs, she mixes it up big time with Milly Beau, throwing listeners for a loop with an extraordinary stage presence and a rollicking live show that makes their minimalist music sound anything but. The tunes were written by Aaron Leeder and John Thayer (of Exit Clov) along with Doran. Mark my words: this is a band more than ready to hit the big time.”
Milly Beau/Sea Wolf/Jealous Girlfriends Review
“I may have entered some kind of temporal rift at the Rock and Roll Hotel in D.C. Sunday night. Maybe there was a small wormhole. Could have been a gravity boost. I can’t say for sure. But what I do know is that much of what I saw doesn’t quite fit in 2008. The stunning vocals from both Mary Beth of Milly Beau (formerly Don''t Be Glib) and Holly of The Jealous Girlfriends exist in a jazz club in the 1920’s. And then there’s Sea Wolf. I’m fairly certain they found the fountain of youth in the 1850’s somewhere in the English countryside, and just waited 150 years to release their beautiful sound on the world.
All kidding aside, this was an absolutely incredible evening. DC locals Milly Beau kicked off the night with their variety of soulful guitar and keys pop rock. My interest was peaked before they even took the stage, as the stage was preset with a lonely kick drum and high hat stage right. I really didn’t know what to expect. What I got was Aaron Leeder playing an acoustic guitar while playing drums! Seriously, who can do that, and do it well. Zach Pentel added electric guitar, and then there was Mary Beth Doran. Mary Beth with a voice that could stop time (see how I added more time references there). I’m pretty sure she could have been reading the phone book into the mic and I’d have been content to listen. The short set was really enjoyable for both the crowd and the band. They were either having a great time, or just enjoying a set-long inside joke, or both. Watch for these guys (and gal) to get noticed soon.”
Milly Beau EP Review
We Love D.C.
“Milly Beau [formerly Don’t Be Glib] sound nothing like I expected. Instead, they make music that would be at home in a dimly-lit cocktail lounge or as the soundtrack to a movie montage where the heroine walks the city streets at night. The sultry croon of singer MaryBeth Doran is the defining element, but she is ably supported by something of a mini-super-group of talent from other area bands, including Aaron Leeder and John Thayer of Exit Clov.
Big changes are on the horizon for Don’t Be Glib. Perhaps foremost, they are thinking of changing their name, which while cute probably does not suit their smoothed-out sound as well as it could. Aaron tells me they are actively searching for a new moniker, so if you listen to their songs and inspiration hits, feel free to leave that in the comments. In addition, they are losing their bassist as he goes on tour managing Ben Kweller and are all moving to New York this fall, where they will be recording a debut full-length release for Greenhouse Records.”
