Conveyor is a Brooklyn-based music project spawned by the fated juncture of a wandering tarot of musicians in Gainesville, FL. Was it kismet or perhaps a primordial summon which led these gentlemen purveyors of sound to individually tune in and migrate North to the bustling seductress known as New York CIty? Their retort is Sun Ray, a debut EP birthed and released in the warm embrace of Spring 2011. Brimming with lucid, homey synths layered over acoustic guitars and harmonious vocals, they channel extraterrestrial bible-thumpers drenched in love, spouting acid-soaked pop unabashed to beam with the simultaneous embrace of life/death realities backed by a polyrhythmic, pulsing backdrop. A decidedly grand task indeed, and following a string of self-released, handmade EPs, they are releasing their debut full-length album in 2012 with Brooklyn's Paper Garden Records, a testament to our nature and the nature of ourselves.
Following high school graduation in 2006, the band Murals dug their act out of the basement and planted it onto stages and into minds across Louisville, KY. Founding members Evan Blum (bass), Rob Monsma (drums) and Jacob Weaver (vocals/guitar) dreamed up a musical fruit jam, blending art-rock and psychedelic proto-punk. The addition of Hunter Presnell on guitar in 2009 completed the bands line-up.
On July 1, 2012, Murals are releasing their self-produced album "On a Passing Cloud", which was recorded off and on over the past two years. The project started in late 2009 with the band sifting through an unconscionable amount of cassette demos and session recordings. Curious about constructing a latticework of familiar and disparate sounds, Murals relocated to a warehouse space in downtown Louisville.
The band taught itself to record, and songs "Thief" and "Lunar Love" were selected respectively for the ninth and tenth installments of the Louisville is for Lovers compilation album series. As a result, Murals grew more serious about a release of their own.
Eight songs were chosen, finalized and mastered for the On a Passing Cloud album, which is to be released on the July 6th. With the bulk of a second LP already committed to tape, plans for a summer tour, and a current musical residency at the Monkey Wrench in Louisville, Murals is a band with eyes facing forward.
