David Mueller’s aural reflections on Raleigh.
Below the fold is a summary of some of the local musical events that occurred in 2009, month by month.
Flying Tiger Sound, the Annual’s label, Terpsikhore, and WKNC team up to make something special.
I’m not even going to try and explain the artistic philosophies behind Birds of Avalon’s latest, “Uncanny Valley.” If you want to know all about the robot theory that inspired the album’s title, go here or, better yet, here. Or, perhaps most appropriately, put some headphones on (not ear buds, dammit, actual headphones), close your eyes, crank it up and absorb. Then get ready to watch BOA take everyone in the Pour House to Uncanny Valley during this Saturday’s CD-release party. Bass player Dave Mueller answered five questions about the new CD and the band’s on-the-road dining habits for New Raleigh.
New Raleigh drops in a few words on some recent releases from some folks down the street: The second full length from Birds of Avalon and two cassette gems from Shards.
Birds of Avalon, Raleigh’s tried and true rockers are working on some new things. There’s the experimental new LP, Uncanny Valley and some tour dates to boot. Jump on in for the skinny.
That’s the kind of shout-out we like to see.
Could 2009 be Raleigh’s year to get its groove back and shine in the music scene?
Get yourself some Bicentennial, baby.
