Dirtnap Records News Includes SXSW Party on Thursday, and New Music From Steve Adamyk Band
Dirtnap Records has been hard at work with new upcoming releases from Steve Adamyk Band and Martha, as well as a SXSW party! If you are in Austin this week, be sure to stop by Beerland on Thursday, March 14th for a Dirtnap Records party! The show will run from noon to 6pm and it will feature performances by Mind Spiders (Ft. Worth, TX), Proud Parents (Madison, WI), Radioactivity(NYC/Texas), Fox Face (Milwaukee, WI), Drakulas (Austin, TX), and Ten High (Fayetteville, AR).
Steve Adamyk Band remains Canada's premiere power-pop/punk crossover group. Throughout the last decade, the band has toured Japan, Europe (four times) and all across North American, unleashing five albums and a long list of seven inch singles. Fast-forward to 2019 and the band has been reborn. SAB is now solidified as a three-piece live (with Pat Johnson of The Acorn on Drums and Johnny O of Uranium Comeback on bass) and are somehow tighter, more focused than ever. On record, the threesome have also retained original member Dave Williams on vocals to give the songs the same vibe everyone has grown to love. Paradise - the album itself - is nothing short of a monster. Suitably with a new lineup, the band has also beefed-up their sound. With their original feel in mind, there is nothing lo-fi about this record.
Recorded by Mike Bond at Wolf Lake (Crusades) and mixed by Jesse Gander (White Lung, Japandroids) in Vancouver, Paradise is a sonically huge offering, with just the right amount of scuzz and crud where needed. 12 new rippers, including an incredible cover of "Telephone" by The Incredible Kidda Band.
