Luray and Winterpills Concert
Saturday 2/8:$7. Doors at 7
Keep it in the family. Luray is the indie-banjo creation of Shannon Carey. With production help from brother Sean Carey (of S. Carey and Bon Iver), Luray’s unique sound creates strange and lovely bedfellows of different genres. Banjos, vibes, pedal steel, and ambient vocals make up this bluegrass-trained songwriter’s new and vibrant approach to making music. The end result is somewhere between Iron & Wine and Emmylou Harris. Luray has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, Daytrotter, WXPN, and Mountain Stage and has been reviewed by the Washington Post, CMT Edge, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Utne Reader.

Starting with their self-titled debut in 2005, Winterpills have built a vibrant career with their exquisite chamber-pop songs that The Washington Post called “densely packed but hugely evocative, tiny bombs of feeling and meaning… fiendishly melodic.”, attracting fans from their native New England to the Netherlands and beyond. One of the most exciting bands to emerge from Northampton, Massachusetts in recent years, they play haunting, delicate, dynamic, room-hushingly beautiful music with shimmering melodies and aching lyrics. Fronted by singers Philip Price and Flora Reed, they harmonize closely, often and gorgeously. Winterpills have released 5 albums and are putting the finishes touches their 6th, Echolalia, a full-length covers-only album due out in early 2014. Their previous one, 2012′s All My Lovely Goners stretched well beyond the band’s previous boundaries, while still embracing the hushed vocal harmonies and graceful chamber-pop sound the group has made its trademark. The album made MOJO’s Top Ten Americana Albums of 2012, and Rolling Stone Magazine asked, “I don’t know why Winterpills aren’t one of the most cherished pop bands in the world: Their songs are mournful, slow-exploding and lyrically dazzling.”
