If you're in Boston and reading this on Saturday evening, March 5th, then you're in luck - you can still make it over to Great Scott to catch Endless Wave at their album release show (and if I was a better blogger, I'd have given you more notice). They're batting clean-up in a line-up that includes The December Sound, J/Q, and Eksi Ekso (who are also releasing their brand new record this evening).
Even if you don't make it over, grab the song below to hear how Endless Wave's new "Notes From The Compound" LP kicks off. This track's a top-notch slice of layered guitar-psych anchored by a killer rolling bass line, and gives you a good idea what you're in for...
The rest of the record (which was recorded at the famed Camp Street Studios/former Fort Apache location just before it closed down) can be streamed and purchased at their Bandcamp page, and a very-limited-edition CD version of "Notes..." can be had at tonight's show (for free... so arrive early). The album's right up my sonic alley, and I'm hoping my previous plan to catch Rival Schools a couple blocks away at Brighton Music Hall tonight allows me to skip over to Great Scott to see some of EW's set. At the very least, I want to try and grab one of those discs. Head to the band's Facebook page and do that 'like' thing or hit up their Twitter to stay in the loop, and check out their 2010 debut EP, "City Walls", on Bandcamp, where you can snag the track "Ocean Drive" gratis.
