got three new local releases out this week with release shows to
boot! --- Kicking things off tonight over at the Urban Lounge we'll
see the split release between Virgin Sophia and VCR5 from ExUmbrella Records. ...I wish I had
more on this but I couldn't locate any sample tracks. But you know
these two and the work they do as far as techno goes, so you can
probably guess this split will be an interesting selection of their
latest. Yeah, I know, that sounds generic, but what else am I supposed to say over something I've never heard? I couldn't even find proper album title, just the disc below as far as album art goes. In any case the evening
looks to be badass performance wise as these two will be playing with 6335 and the
Rotten Musicians. Just $6 starting at 10PM.
night sees two more, starting at Kilby Court with the latest
full-length from Double Or Nothing
. We haven't heard a lot from these
guys since 2009, which after double checking was the last time they
properly updated their Facebook and MySpace pages, promising a new EP
and to request them anytime on X96... I'm sure they'll take that request right away. But it looks like they
spent most of 2010 working on this brand new album, Silhouettes
While sticking to their half acoustic-half rock mentality with the
high vocals, there's a bit of Jars Of Clay feeling in this one. Not
so much on the religious end, more to the sound and tone. I'd tell you to buy it at a store but as the only good picture I could find of the album says below, you can only purchase them at their shows. C
the release with them will be Hello Sky!
, Clay Summers
and Cody Rigby
$8 starting at 7PM.
Meanwhile over at The Wooshed will be the
full-length release from Fleetwood
. The West Valley City hip-hopper
has been playing around town and getting a buzz going over his work
for nearly a year, finally getting everything together for this big
release. Dream Big
sounds fresh and polished, some pretty good work went
into this one making it one hell of big debut for the man. Not much on the
sampling end as most of the album is original beats and rhymes. Its
at least worth a listen. Joining in the party will be GeorgeLife
, plus more to be named. Just $5 starting at 10PM.
out, love music, buy local!
