TEARIST in-store April 30th

Sat April 30th 7pm
Album Release Show for
Tearist Living: 2009-Present LP
@ Vacation

Over the last two years Tearist has become one of the most notorious and vital bands in the new underground pulsing through Los Angeles. Building on songs driven by intense vocals and synths, the duo’s performances are known for being deeply physical and direct events. Yasmine Kittles sings from the depths of her body/soul and moves in a near-transfixed state, using scrap metals to scrape rhythm from the ground beneath her. All the while, as if telepathically linked, William Stangeland uses sputtering, cracked synthesizers to create shimmering melodic lines along rumbling interlocked beats and rhythms. Their songs flow and surge, building thick layers of analog sound and noise, often leaving wrecked PA’s in their wake.
On the heels of the band’s recent 12” EP issued by No Age’s PPM label, Thin Wrist Recordings is proud to release Tearist’s first full-length album, Tearist Living: 2009-Present.

Purple Rhinestone Eagle in-store April 22nd

Friday April 22nd 7pm

Purple Rhinestone Eagle is a three piece rock n roll band that reside in Portland, OR. Through magic, ritual and heavy riffs they conjure up the spirit of rock’s mighty past. All the while they keep their eyes and ears keenly focused on the present and future of music. Blending the Psychedelic with the Heavy, the esoteric and the existential, the slow mystical unveiling with the urgency of today, they are creating a fuzzed out rock n roll soundtrack to the ultimate search for meaning in a world full of contradictions, insanity and dis empowering, disconnected modern living. Through their music they wish to state: by creating, we can create meaning for our lives. We enter new realms of being.
