we’re back in the hill city after a whirlwind weekend in norfolk/virginia beach. friday night’s show with the vicars & electric low was right fantastic! a great evening with friends, both new & old alike. the vicars swept the room into a sense of high worship from dark places with their array of vocal harmonies & post-victorian instrumentation while electric low took the audience back to the future with a mix of infectious rhythms, bombastic percussion & wash after wash of amplified melody. if you get a chance to see either of these acts, we guarantee you won’t be let down…
we spent saturday in the belly of whalehead records, a wonderful little studio space run by members of electric low. we were able to track a brand new song & put together a live three man improv session with our good buddy joey wright on banjo (we tacked on a stellar live take of “matisse” for good measure). fingers crossed we are able to share these sounds with you soon…
on wednesday, 05/23, joe (under the guise of “asentimentalsong”) will be performing as part of a photo show that is opening at speakertree records! this will serve as a “release” show for his most recent effort, a split 10” with brooklyn’s guilty ghosts. also performing will be our good bud andrew weathers!
COME BY & DRONE OUT!
just wanted to say thanks to all who have been kind enough to take in a performance, or purchase one of our records, or throw us a hi-five or a hug over the past few weeks. i speak for joe when i say that we DEFINITELY feel loved in our home town. your enthusiasm for our sounds energizes us more than we can explain in words here.
in more traditional “band” news, we are heading down to norfolk for a set with electric low & the vicars this friday night. come out to the jewish mother backstage (on granby, directly behind the norva) & space out with us. not sure of the lineup, but i would venture to guess we will start the night off, so be there when it all goes down at 9P. $5 door should make this a relatively inexpensive night for some rock action.
