Soak up some great new shoegaze/psych from locals Chatham Rise’s forthcoming LP (Show with Brian Jonestown Massacre Saturday!)
Chatham Rise are a band Twin Cities music fans will already be familiar with, but judging from the first samples off their forthcoming Meadowsweet< LP, they may be branching out to a wider audience soon. You can sample a couple great new songs below, which highlight the bands lush take on psych rock & shoegaze. The music is hazy, but still rich in melody. Over the five songs you can check out now, the music is full of textural drones, effect-drenched guitars and foggy melodies, but throughout the cacophony of sound the band never let the songwriting wane. It captures sound and feeling, never losing one to benefit the other. If you like what you hear via the bandcamp link below you can pre-oder the album, which drops at the end of the month on the Picture in My Ear label. You also can check out the band live this weekend as they open for the legendary Brian Jonestown Massacre on Saturday at First Avenue. More info/RSVP/ticket link HERE.
