Our friends at Cutty Sark
recently invited us to capture an evening of ecstatic happenings at Brooklyn Bowl as part of the inaugural Cutty Sark Presents Series. There was booze, there was bowling, and most importantly, there were bands. Incredible bands, actually, each bringing their own unique offering of energy to the stage.
Roanoke rockers Eternal Summers
is a collective that maintains the goal of their band name. Summer, sun, and other synonyms for beautiful weather remains ingrained in their sound. Their new album Gold and Stone
infuses their similar and likable pop grooves with bouncy guitars and breezy melodies. Though summer may not be forever, the fun and jubilant nature of the season carry's through the band's performance at Brooklyn Bowl. Check out the beautiful concert capture for Cutty Presents.
Virginia based duo Eternal Summers has collected all their early EP, 7 inch, and cover recordings to put forth one reissue under the name The Dawn of Eternal Summers to be released on Record Store Day (April 21st) via Kanine Records.
For the first time these twelve tracks will be released in digital format and available on all digital services. If you crave the physical product, colored vinyl with download code, head on down to your local shop on April 21st to snag a limited edition. The B side contains three cover songs not available on the digital version: Into Your Arms (as made famous by the Lemonheads), A Salty Salute (Guided by Voices) and Down to the Wire (Neil Young).
Roanoke, VA based duo, Nicole Yun and Daniel Cundiff received early praise from Pitchfork, Fader and Gorilla Vs Bear. And in the fall of 2010, Nicole Yun and Daniel Cundiff released their debut album Silver via Brooklyn based indie Kanine and followed up with the Prisoner EP (Forest Family/Kanine) in the spring of 2011. While consistently releasing music gaining praise from Spin, Filter, Under the Radar and more, Eternal Summers also completed several US tours with the likes of The Beets, The Raveonettes, and Reading Rainbow building their name the old fashioned way. These tours allowed them to play around with the idea of adding a bassist, having tried out several on the road.
Having found the right fit with bassist Jonathan Woods, Eternal Summers, now officially a trio, used the second half of 2011 to record their sophomore LP. Recorded at home in the Mystic Fortress, but for the first time allowing input from outside their inner circle, Correct Behavior was mixed by Sune Rose Wagner (The Ravonettes) and Alonzo Vargas. The album is a sonic leap forward, and it is being readied for release in June with further details to be announced shortly.
