This event is 21 and over
Distant Correspondent is a band whose members include David Obuchowski (also of Goes Cube), Michael Lengel, and Emily Gray (formerly of Meanwhile Back In Communist Russia). Fully formed in 2012, the band worked in secrecy with Edith Frost (solo artist, Drag City Records) as a major contributor to the band's catalog before announcing itself to the public in early 2013. A wave of press quickly followed with Maura Magazine, and Aquarium Drunkard both premiering songs, the Vice music channel, Noisey, premiering a music video by award-winning filmmaker, Heather Crank, and Oh My Rockness profiling the band. In April, 2013 Distant Correspondent signed to Denver-based indie, Hot Congress Records, who will release their debut full-length later in 2013. That same month, the band joined the Static Caravan Recordings roster. The UK label will put out a limited-edition single in the late summer of 2013.
Fingers Of The Sun
Fingers of the Sun’s music is made of sci-fi pulp novels, lazy teenage afternoons and a vividly realized wonderland of imagery, psychedelia and mid 20th century pop. They smoked the banana peels, but only because they enjoyed the taste, believing the world is acid-damaged enough to send anyone on a bad permatrip. Like their namesake, The Fugs’ song adapted in part from a 5000 year old Egyptian poem to Nun, the goddess of the watery abyss, Fingers of the Sun “grip the mountain where hawk claws flash and flicker in the dawn.”
Eye and The Arrow
The Eye and the Arrow is simple. It is the aroma of coffee coming up the stairs in the morning that nudges you out of a cold bed with a genuine sense of “I can do this”. I will chose the adventure of the day. It is discrete. It is a secret between lovers. The scratchy reaching vocals croon purposefully over walking chords, melodic bass lines and drums that go every which way but easy.
