Anwar Sadat has been pretty busy the last few months with tons of out of town shows as well as a spate of Louisville gigs. They’ve been laying down some groundwork in anticipation for a new 12″ record entitled “Gold” which will be hitting the streets and the web on March 8th, 2013. On the 8th, Cropped Out, The Other Side of Life, and Astro Black will present a release show at Quills/Astro Black to celebrate. Also playing the show will be Whips/Chains and The New Mexico (thought they were done, shows what little I know). The show will be at 10pm for $5, and of course all ages.
Neighbor has released a new record which is now available via Bandcamp or CD. The self-titled release has 10 songs.
it’s impressive how powerfully and rapidly the album slams open and never fucking subsides its push.
Recorded by Trip at Treehouse Audio last year, the album sees full time members Adam Kirby, Aaron Sortman, and Sean Gardner team up with Bob Scott on a couple of tracks. It starts off heavy and never lets up, with pouding, driving drums at just the right tempo as to not feel rushed nor feel complacent and guitar/bass tones fleshing out the distortion-heavy volume worship that has formed many local band’s sounds the past 10 years or so. A couple of spots remind me of some earlier Lords material, which I mean, and which I’d hope they’d take, as a compliment.
Neighbor will be playing a release show TONIGHT with Anwar Sadat at Z-Bar. Also playing will be Rogue Vogue from Chicago and the OK DeeJays presumably after the bands.
Neighbor is a heavy band with some heavy thoughts on their mind.
