Deserved hype is beginning a lazy swirl around :: clicky clicky :: faves Relay, which is Spin.com's featured band of the day today and who were recently profiled here in the digital and paper pages of Philadelphia's Philadelphia Weekly arts and entertainment tabloid. The band plays a record release show Saturday in its hometown. Next month band leader Jeff Zeigler and company undertake a brief and altogether Boston-less tour in support of its new full length Still Point Of Turning. We were quite taken with the preceding Type/Void EP, and look forward to getting our hands on Still Point.
But the most exciting prospect may be seeing the blistering dream pop tunes performed live. In the Philadelphia Weekly piece Zeigler says the band can't recreate some of the studio trickery employed in its songs, meaning you'll hear some new and interesting stuff out there. Anyhoo, full dates are below. Bubble Core Records is hosting an MP3 of the tune "Context" from the new record, which we'll link to here to save you the trip.
