CONTEST – Via Audio @ The Drake Underground – March 1, 2010
Lev KupermanBrookyln’s Via Audio have a pretty good claim to fame in being able to point to Spoon drummer Jim Eno as producer of both their full-length albums; 2007’s Say Something and their new one Animalore, due out on March 9. But don’t be expecting skeletally lean and stabby guitar rock – though some lessons in aural economy have been carried over, Animalore favours much lusher sounds and spins Via Audio’s playful guitar-pop in a decidedly retro-funky direction, dressing Jessica Martins and
Dan Molad’s Tom Deis’ smooth vocal interplay up in synths and spangle though there are still forays into country-esque and straight rock to keep things good and varied.
Via Audio are teaming up with fellow Brooklyners Pattern Is Movement for a North American tour that kicks off this week and hits the Drake Underground in Toronto on March 1. Tickets are $10 in advance but courtesy of REMG, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go Via Audio” in the subject line and your full name in the body and have that in to me before midnight, February 25.
