St. Louis' unseasonably harsh winter has been a boon for local bands, many of whom have spent the time indoors hammering out new tunes. Here's a brief round-up of upcoming releases from The Blind Eyes, Sleepy Kitty, The Incurables and Old Lights.
The Blind Eyes Album: With a Bang Release Show: June 11 Where: Off Broadway With: Sleepy Kitty The city's beloved rock-pop band has been hard at work at Firebrand Studios recording the follow-up to Modernity. Expect more of the group's shuffling melancholy on Bang.
Sleepy Kitty Album: Infinity City (Pre-)Release Show: April 28 Where: Off Broadway With: Warm Jets USA, Frances With Wolves Bucking tradition, the cracked-noise-pop duo is dubbing this a "special pre-release show." The hook? Those in attendance will get a "secret, one-time-only gift to whet the appetite for the coming record. What kind of gift? We don't know: it's a secret! Only you can find out..." The Incurables Album: FM EP Release Show: April 30 Where: Off Broadway With: TBA The Incurables has been opening for Alejandro Escovedo this year quite a bit, but found the time to record a new EP, FM.
Old Lights Album: New EP TBA, ten-inch vinyl Release Show: July 15 Where: Off Broadway After a regrouping period, the pop architects in Old Lights have been getting back into recording mode in Nashville, at David Vandervelde's studio. The result is a six-song EP that the quintet is hoping to fund via a Kickstarter project. More info here as well!
