Early Day Miners

New Orleans, LA
Early Day Miners' surroundings have always been reflected in their sound. ...Their early compositions mirror the slowly unfurling, seemingly inescapable expanse of the Midwest. Any sense of movement therein is often a matter of patience, or perhaps just beautifully performed sleight of hand, an aural homeopathy. There are generous hints at intimacy, but it is obscured intimacy. A change of place and the time between, from the basements of Bloomington to the Bywater of New Orleans, has yielded a subtle but correlative shift in the band. The Crescent City; its name is not only a reminder of its shape carved out by the river cradling it, but also a perfect allegory of a city forever in flux between the most contrasting aspects of the human condition, from light to dark. Within those darker quarters of experience lies the gold that Early Day Miners have labored to unearth with cautious vulnerability over the course of their eight albums. Read More

Quichenight

Nashville, TN
"Since launching his Quichenight project in 2010, Nashville songsmith Brett... Rosenberg has churned out homespun lo-fi pop by the bushel. The past 18 months alone have yielded a winning collab with Birdcloud’s Jasmin Kaset, Tuxedo, plus a pair of new Quichenight offerings. This Grimey’s in-store marks the release of the second of those, Dork in the Dark, Rosenberg’s debut for SoCal tape-mongers Burger Records. (2018’s Cooler Heads, released via in-town indie YK Records, is the other.) Eccentric, sharp and funny, with a crackling recording that gives its 12 carefree rave-ups, wry confessionals and gently funky interludes a timeless quality, Dork is the latest evidence of Rosenberg’s songwriting aptitude and easy knack for melody. Serious about the craft but never sounding labored, the album — hell, the whole Quichenight continuum — is a perfectly imperfect distillation of all the things that make power pop great." --Charlie Zaillian, Nashville Scene Read More
