For a new band EYELIDS have quite a collective history of creating music for some of the most legendary indie songwriters ever. Not only were these longtime Portland, Oregon collaborators the principal instrumentalists for Robert Pollard's post Guided By Voices band Boston Spaceships for over eight releases, but they have also worked in recent years with Stephen Malkmus, The Decemberists, Elliott Smith, Sam Coomes of Quasi, Black Prairie, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Loch Lomand, Damian Jurado and Peter Buck.

EYELIDS have turned inwards to their loves of New Zealand/Flying Nun guitar buzz , their teenage L.A. paisley underground obsessions, haunts of early Athens and all things beautiful, lopsided and rock to shove onto a mere 7" record. The SEAGULLS INTO SUBMISSION 7" is just a hint of what EYELIDS are working on for their upcoming full length with Adam Selzer (The Gossip, The Breeders, Red Fang) as well as their head swirling live shows.

The 7" comes with an exclusive B-Side "I Can't Be Told", Download sticker and an exclusive live cover of Gun Club's classic "Sex Beat" performed with Jerry A. (of Poison Idea) and Steve Wynn (of Dream Syndicate).


Denim Wedding

Jennifer Faust and Brian Kunkel met at the now closed venue The Woods, in Portland,Oregon during the fall of 2009. Soon after, they began performing Jennifer's solo material both locally and on tour, but the project quickly evolved into more of a collaboration and was renamed Denim Wedding. Though Brian and Jennifer often perform as a duo, the project also includes a revolving roster of bassists, percussionists, and other musicians. Their overall sound can be described as "lush Americana"- powerful lyrics, rich vocal harmonies, and melodies cradled in the effect-driven arms of some heady guitar maneuverings. The music has a warm, cinematic feel to it- comparisons can be found in bands such as Cat Power, Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, and Beach House.
