Y La Bamba, Paper Bird, & Yet: October 25th at the Crocodile


We have the honor to share a bill with Portland’s Y La Bamba and Denver’s Paper Bird on Thursday, October 25th at The Crocodile.

If you haven’t yet heard of Y La Bamba, then SHAME ON YOU! because they’re one of the Pacific Northwest’s most valuable gems in the music scene of the last two years and this year’s album “Court the Storm” is a must-have if you happen to be proud of your eclectic music collection.

Eventful.com: “With their new album, ‘Court the Storm’, Portland OR’s Y La Bamba return with a haunting second full-length of delicately crafted art folk. ‘The voice is most effective when it’s indistinguishable from the emotion of the lyric as well as the drama of the rhythm and chords’ says NPR’s Felix Contreras when discussing Y La Bamba’s stunning front-woman, adding ‘…Luz Elena Mendoza stands very near the front of this pack.’ On ‘Court the Storm’, these ethereal vocals combine with bittersweet melodies and thrumming Latin-inspired rhythms to form an indie pop masterpiece.”

NPR: “Mendoza’s voice seemed otherworldly…It is light and ethereal yet seemingly tortured — she sings with deep emotion, if not pain.”

Paper Bird’s live performances showcase the diversity and good-time vibe of the group while providing a fresh and unique take on a sound that has a tendency to bring the listener back to a different era. Young in age but timeless in spirit, Paper Bird continually captures the hearts of new listeners and long-time fans. Their rare and beautiful approach to music led them to be featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and were voted in the Top 10 Best Underground Bands by the Denver Post three years in a row, as well as being 5280’s Top of the Town 2009 “Top Local Band” in Denver, CO.

And then there’s us:

& Yet has grand plans to turn our focus inward for the remainder of the year, to get into the recording studio and create for you a six-track EP, in time for release at the top of 2013. This is our last show on the books for awhile until we have that goal, which has been in development for some time, accomplished.

Come out an support an incredible bill put on at The Crocodile in Seattle, WA.  We guarantee it will be the best decision of your Thursday.

Sunday 9/23 at the Crocodile

This coming Sunday, September 23rd Friends and Family, Let’s Get Lost, The Hoot Hoots and & Yet perform at The Crocodile in Seattle, WA.

This will be the album release show for Let’s Get Lost‘s album “House of Cards” (click here to listen to a sample). Described as ‘vintage pop,’ Let’s get lost is an amalgamation of catchy melody and pulsing rhythm. The release of “House of Cards” is sure to appeal to your pop sensibilities. You’ll want a copy as bad as I do.

 

Friends and Family and The Hoot Hoots are sure to satisfy as well. I saw Friends and Family play at the Tractor some months back. Their stage presence was inspiring and their energy contagious. I was on a date, so I tried to play it cool and act like I wasn’t that into it. You know, to impress the girl with my apathy towards everything. Unfortunately, I ended up making a fool of myself on the dance floor and never saw that woman again.

“Power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots know how to have fun, and their newest release Appetite for Distraction proves it. Their second full-length album of the year is rife with singsong choruses, idyllic imagery and enough peppy riffing to keep listeners feeling fuzzy long after the last track has finished.”

Also, in my impressively level-headed and unbiased opinion, & Yet will come out ready to impress. The self actualization of this project is right around the corner as our delicate and dramatic pieces strive to send shivers down your spine with poignant depth and harmonic intricacy.

-Jonathan (of & Yet)
