FREE SHOW! Sunken Ships record release party!, Seasons, The Vapes

Sunken Ships

From 
the
 unholy
 union 
between
 Morrissey,
 Johnny
 Cash, 
and
Jeff
 Buckley,
 and 
gestated 
in 
the
 womb 
of
 eastside
L.A.,
a
 band
 was 
born. 

Sprung 
from
 the
 mind 
of 
singer‐songwriter
Ray
 Argyle, 
and
 made 
flesh
 with
 a
 motley 
crew
 of 
thieves,
 ruffians,
 and 
beggars,
Sunken
Ships
plays
a
darker
shade
of
folk,
a 
wistful
 indie 
rock 
with
 relatable 
hints 
of
 bitterness
 and
 hope.




The
 nucleus 
is
 Ray,
 with
 acoustic
 guitar
 or
 piano,
 singing
with
 beautiful
 sadness, 
but 
there’s 
something
 entirely 
more
raucous
 and
 rebellious
 simmering 
below
 the 
surface,
 which
 finds
its
voice
in
their 
live
 shows.

Ray’s 
croon
 can
 rasp 
into 
a 
shout 
without
warning.

Joe’s
 ethereal
 guitar 
tones
 morph 
into
 a 
wall
 of 
sound, 
and
 Pablo’s
poignant
 violin
 swoops
 and
 swells 
above 
the
 fray.
 
 This 
troupe 
of
 charmingly
 disheveled
 misfits 
have 
been
 making
 their
 rounds,
 performing
 in
 the
saloons,
 roadhouses, 
cafes,
 and
 vintage 
stores
 of
 Southern
California.
Sunken
Ships 
are 
currently 
recording
 their
 debut
full‐length
 album,
 which
 will 
be 
released 
December 
2011.
 


The band: Seasons, an L.A. quintet.

The sound: On fresh material such as "Light, Lost" and "Of Our Discontent," Seasons crafts airy, spacious guitar rock. With local producer Raymond Richards on the boards (Local Natives), the group's latest EP is full of polished touches. This Highland Park based band plays a tender yet voluminous brand of indie rock, combining winding guitar riffs and Colin Meloy-esque vocals with a veritable forest of carefully arranged flourishes. The synthesizers, keyboards, percussion, and violin never overpower the basic emotional appeal that runs throughout the newest EP instead serving to create a sweetly melancholy atmosphere in which you can easily float away.

The random: For their "Of Our Discontent" video, the band nabbed actress Mahaley Manning, best known for mean-girling poor Emma Stone in "Easy A."

The details: Seasons music is available now digitally on Bandcamp. The band will release their new EP "Autumn" on Overhead Records January 2nd at The Echo where they will also host a residency there for that month. Each week in January the band will be playing a different EP in its entirety along with transforming the venue each week to fit the climate and mood of each album. - LA TIMES
