Local Releases: Three Years Was Worth The Wait


There aren't many local releases this week, but the ones mentioned here should go to the top of your must-listen list. We'll start with the online release,s and the first album up is the debut release from The Sticky Lips. This is a cool three-piece band from Ephraim, comprised of James Arrowood, Caleb Johnson and Chance “Poch” Christensen. The group play a form of alternative music that incorporates blues, reggae and stoner rock that occasionally sounds like a jam session. Their debut release, The Sticky EP, was released a few days ago. You can purchase it for whatever you'd like to pay on Bandcamp.


Moving on to punk rock, next up is the debut release from Dummy Up. This is a Logan group who play loud, play dirty and play fast. You'll find a lot of influence from NOFX, The Offspring and Screeching Weasel in their music, and if you're a punk fan of any kind, then at least one of those influence should make you smile. Their first album, That's Our Choice, came out a couple weeks ago on Bandcamp as a free download. Do yourself a favor and snag a copy today.


Last up is this week's lone album release show, for the much anticipated full-length album from Fictionist. Trying to package what the band's two years contract with Atlantic Records into a single paragraph without interviews wouldn't do the story justice. If you'd like to read more about their experience, City Weekly Music Editor Kolbie Stonehocker chatted with the band a couple weeks ago. This self-titled full-length album is their first new release since their self-titled EP was released in October 2011, and includes all-new material from the past year's worth of work. It already came out on iTunes last week, but Fictionist's release show tonight at Velour is your chance to snag a physical copy along. The band will be performing an extra-long set with California band Swimm opening the show, the tickets are only $10 and doors open at 8 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local.
