Milo Greene — a band, not a person — makes its first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown. The cinematic pop band offsets its atmospheric melodies with a driving, energetic edge.

Four of Milo Greene's five members — keyboardist Marlana Sheetz, bassist Graham Fink and guitarists Andrew Heringer and Robbie Arnett — share lead-vocal duties, and often swap instruments between songs. Along with Curtis Marrero on drums, they've opened for The Civil Wars on a 2011 tour and are set to play Lollapalooza this summer.

The band takes its name from the persona of a fictitious booking agent its members created in their first days of playing shows. After achieving some success, they decided to keep the name.

Set List
  • "Cutty Love"
  • "Perfectly Aligned"
  • "What's The Matter"
  • "Wooden Antlers"
  • "Don't You Give Up On Me"
