Watching the Tide Roll Away

Every time I find myself at a really great show where there are about seven people in attendance, and most of them work with the venue, or were in other bands playing that night; I get a little sad. Why aren't more people getting to see this, I wonder, why, why!?!

If you missed Over the Atlantic at Pehrspace on Tuesday night, and it was a bit of a last minute announcement, you do have one more chance to catch them this week on Friday night at Echo Curio. The sound that I heard from them was a bit more outwardly rocking than I was expecting which I have to say was quite enjoyable. They employed the loud shimmering guitar sound that I love more than most any other guitar sound, the vocals were low and slightly distorted, and the drums were tight. It all added up to something extraordinarily effective that found me involuntarily trying to keep the rhythm with my foot, and this was achieved with them having just arrived from New Zealand earlier that day, and having just purchased and/or borrowed every instrument that they were using. It was also, I believe, the bass player's first official show with the band. Therefore, Friday's show promises to be even better than that one. Here are a few more details:


"Over the Atlantic (Carpark Records) are playing a one-off show in LA this coming weekend. From New Zealand, this is Over the Atlantic's second trip to LA, and the first trip to feature a full live band. Their last visit was with Beach House to support the release of their debut album "Junica". On this tour they are releasing a special tour only EP featuring 5 songs never before released in the US including 2 tracks from their forthcoming second album.

They are playing at Echo Curio on Friday with the wonderful Don Cavalli (Everloving Records - France) and locals Deepakalypse and Team Scrub."


They've also been kind enough to send me an MP3 from their forthcoming full length Dimensions which is available for you to download here.

It's also worth noting that Don Cavalli really is wonderful, and I'm sure well worth making a point to see live. His new record Cryland has been in my car's CD player since Monday afternoon, and it's an unnervingly perfect blend of blues, zydeco, a little soul, and even a slight hint of reggae that. If it wasn't executed SO lovingly, and SO well it might even make you a bit uncomfortable to know that the songs were the creation of a white French man. The songs are executed that well though, and the result is honestly nothing short of amazing.
