"Good evening, we're the Brummies."
With that simple introduction, so opens one of the year's most immersive and adventurous rock albums, Eternal Reach. The debut LP by Birmingham, Alabama, band the Brummies ¬– their name is U.K. slang for a resident of Birmingham – Eternal Reach is a musician's album, distinguished by inventive arrangements, lush melodies and straight-to-tape production. Perfectly suited for losing yourself beneath a pair of quality headphones, the record evokes the psych-rock vibe of the Sixties and the soft indie-folk of the Nineties, yet possesses a timeless sound all its own.
Recorded at Battle Tapes Recording in Nashville with engineer Jeremy Ferguson and co-producer David Hopkins, Eternal Reach now serves as the Brummies' stunning calling card.
"We knew we wanted to tell a story with Eternal Reach. It's very thematic and it sounds like a movie," says Jacob. "But it's a love story: from meeting the person to the breakup, to that feeling where you think you might die without them, and then the realization that it's all going to be OK. We thought a lot about that."
"When fans hear the record, I'd love them to appreciate the sounds we chose, the lyrics we wrote and how this is the story we're trying to tell," says Jacob.
"It's a complete piece of work and we want people to be able to tell that we took our time with it," adds John. "This is the sound of the Brummies.”
Thirsty Curses is a rock n’ roll outfit based out of Raleigh, NC. The band was formed by singer-songwriter Wilson Getchell (vocals, guitar, piano) in late 2016 and features Kelley Otwell on lead guitar, Phil Harrington on drums, and Clayton Herring on bass. Thirsty Curses' material draws from numerous genres including punk, folk, country, pop rock, and grunge and explores lyrical themes ranging from the existential to the absurd. Thirsty Curses' songs balance between exuberance and despair, are impassioned and sardonic, comical yet foreboding.
YES! Weekly writes that "Thirsty Curses make rock’n’roll, with a boisterous beer-swilling edge to it. Many of these songs are about living it up while things fall apart at the seams, or at least trying to find some glory in chaos and meaninglessness. You might hear a connection to the Replacements, the Hold Steady, the Dropkick Murphys, and other rowdy rockers."
