Bedroom Eyes Record Release Show With Sneeze, Lube, Kal Marks And Big Mess | O'Brien's Pub, Boston | 9 July
There's no denying rising shoegaze concern Bedroom Eyes, with one foot firmly planted in Boston and another in its native New Hampshire, are having a huge year. The Boston Phoenix just named them the best new band in New Hampshire, fercrissakes, and according to Wikipedia there are 1.3 million people in the Granite State. Sure, not ALL of them have bands, but still, you gotta figure the list is long, and Bedroom Eyes is at the top. On Monday the groop will self-release a debut full length What Are You Wrong With on CD and digital download. The album will be feted with a record release show/mini-tour homecoming show at O'Brien's Pub in Boston the same night, with supporting sets from noise pop luminaries Sneeze, Lube, Kal Marks and Big Mess. Rock fans may or may not recall Sneeze as being behind the awesome track "Brainage Pipe," which feature on the recent, excellent As Built PR comp you can download for free right here (we also played the track at the May installation of New Music Night, playlist here).
But back to Bedroom Eyes. Certain selections from the act's new collection are available digitally via Bandcamp right here for free, and to wet your whistle we're embedding the stunningly beautiful tune "Garmonbozia" below. Based on the album art linked above, the song is the lead track from the new album, which touts an additional 10 tracks. Speaking of free, in case you missed it, Bedroom Eyes' intense cover of Ride's "In A Different Place" was one of the many highlights from our Nofuckingwhere compilation, which compilation you can still download for free right here. Finally, the chaps in the band tell us they are already at work on a follow-up to What Are You Wrong With, and it will be an EP tentatively set for release on cassette at some date yet to be determined. So start saving your nickels, and get out Monday night to support the now sounds.
