Listen: Barely Eagle

I’m loving these two tracks that Columbus band Barely Eagle debuted on Bandcamp. Featuring CD102.5′s Tom Butler, plus alums of Deerhead and Butler’s old band Church of the Red Museum, Barely Eagle announced itself with little fanfare but great anticipation this summer. These two songs deliver. “There’s Something Wrong with the Kids in this Town” drones for seven minutes but never bores, and “Guns Don’t Kill People, Barely Eagle Kills People” is an onslaught of chunky riffage. Give ‘em a listen, and head to Carabar on Saturday, Nov. 17 for their free show with Temple and Bridesmaid.

Monday: Two Door Cinema Club, Friends, Guards @ The Newport

We were digging Friends’ ’90s-Luscious-Jackson-vibe when the Brooklyn-based band was in Columbus late last year. In June, Friends released Manifest! featuring a dozen danceable, new wave, pop nuggets that fans of Madonna’s earliest work might enjoy.

Friends returns to Columbus on Monday night performing with CD 102.5 favorites Two Door Cinema Club and Guards, featuring Richie James Follin (Willowz, Cults), at The Newport. Tickets are $25 at the door.

Saturday @ Rumba: T.K. Webb’s Sundown returns

YouTube Preview Image

When T.K. Webb came to town, he didn’t waste time forming a band. Sundown initially consisted of Webb, Moons’ Dusty White, Moon High’s Blake Pfister and TV Eye’s Grant Driskell. Then the rhythm section was switched out for Chris Pierce (Main Street Gospel, the Urns) and Vug Arakas (TV Eye, MSG, etc.)

Once Webb and White parted musical ways, Sundown appeared to be over. For all intents and purposes, it was. But after some time off, Webb teamed back up with Pierce and Urns bassist Mike Leach (also of Struck by Lightning). After practicing for more than a month at Pierce’s house in rural Orient, Ohio, Sundown is back with a more stripped-down sound they’ll debut Saturday at Rumba Cafe as a trio; it’s Webb’s first show with a band since May. Expect songs from the Spoonful Records 12-inch Mansion Burning — including “Life’s Too Long,” currently in rotation on CD102.5 — and some new stuff, too.

Red Feathers and Psychic Wheels open.

Interview: Atlas Genius; performing at CD102.5′s Summerfest on Saturday

Who says radio is dead? Certainly not the Australian band Atlas Genius whose “Trojans” has been one of the earwig songs of the summer, receiving massive airplay on both commercial radio stations like CD102.5 – who thinks highly enough of the band that they invited them to play this year’s sold-out Summerfest show on Saturday at the LC – and satellite radio stations such as Sirius XM’s Alt-Nation.

Here’s the thing, to date, Atlas Genius has released only a 3-song EP, Through the Glass, but with the success of “Trojans”, the band is taking advantage of the buzz and hitting the road in America over the next couple of months. They scored the opening slot of Silversun Pickups tour which undoubtedly will put them in front of thousands of people every night. Not too shabby for such a young band.

I sent the trio – Keith Jeffrey (singer/guitarist), Steven Jeffrey (bass), Michael Jeffrey (drums) and Darren Sell (keyboards) – some questions prior to their U.S. live debut. Not sure which of the guys answered the questions, but here ya go.
