Sunday August 12 we will be playing Part Time Punks with Wymond Miles (Fresh & Onlys) and Young Prisms.
Here's what the PTP website has to say about it:
WYMOND MILES, best known as the guitarist for The Fresh & Onlys, has just released a superb 12" on Sacred Bones, "Under The Pale Moon," which has earned universal raves from the likes of Pitchfork, & Gorilla Vs. Bear. The record fuses dreamy Krautrock-esque soundscapes like something straight off the Brain label in Germany in the 1970s with remarkable songs ala' "Porcupine" era Echo & The Bunnymen, Nick Drake and 70s-era Beach Boys like "Surf's Up" and "Sunflower". Or, as Miles puts it: "Sonically the mood had to reflect the somberness of moving between the existential chaos of my 20s into this new perspective of living... The mysterious hues of the soundscape reflect a sense of curiosity and possibility in the canyons of sound."
Listen to WYMOND MILES.
YOUNG PRISMS made their LA debut at PTP back three years ago at the first MBV Nite (the same nite Weekend made their debut). Since then the band has released a handful of remarkable newgaze records on Mexican Summer, Big Love and Kanine and have toured with the likes of Weekend, Dum Dum Girls, Tamaryn, No Joy and Kurt Vile. Heads up, fans of MBV, Mazzy Star & Slowdive!
Listen to YOUNG PRISMS.
