SISTER CRAYON-Watch this space
Local independent label Manimal Vinyl has just announced its signing of Sacramento-based quartet Sister Crayon. The band makes gorgeous, ghostly tunes that blur the line between lo-fi electronics (drum machines, synths) and rich analog atmospherics (organ tones, human voice). The group’s debut single is variably listed as the dubby CocoRosie-esque “(In) Reverse” or haunting, classy number “Here We Never Die,” but either way, Manimal promises something will be officially released “before 2009 is over.” And in any case, both tracks are currently streaming on the group’s MySpace page.
I stumbled upon this act last night in Hollywoods heaving live music hub, Bardot. They are a prime example of the new dub-beat, soul piercing, magnificence which will be at the forefront of the music trend over the summer of 2011. Watch this space and we hail Sister Crayon to the UK!
