CAROLINE ROSE - Tuesday, March 27th @ 6PM
Caroline Rose has created a striking new album called 'Loner.' It's one of the best records of the year so far. I'll let her explain, "The songs and narratives on 'Loner' reflect my life over the last couple years--I joined Tinder, I got my first apartment and painted it teal, I went to parties, I discussed politics, I had a girlfriend, we traveled the country, we broke up. I learned, for better or worse, how to be a member of the modern world. Turns out the modern world is terrifying. Tired of the bottomless pit of sad songs, I decided to put a spin on my greatest songwriting inspirations--misogyny, unplanned pregnancy, Capitalism, anxiety, loneliness and death--and wrap such depressing subject matter in a sprightly, angsty pop burrito...Because it's hard being serious all the time and sometimes sad songs just need a cocktail. Loner reflects the styles of music I love--pop, folk, punk, electronic, and surf music--all thrown into a blender with a ladle full of cheeky satire. I call it Schizodrift. It sounds like Blondie drunk on mai tais. Loner was co-produced by myself and the wonderful Paul Butler (Devendra Banhart, Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul & The Broken Bones) and recorded in freezing Northern California, in addition to my parent's attic and my last apartment. It was mixed by sound guru Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Nick Hakim, Show Me The Body) in Brooklyn, NY. - C.Rose.
Join us on Tuesday, March 27th, at 6PM, when Caroline Rose will play a free, all ages, in-store live set at Grimey's before her show later that night at the High Watt.
Detroit Rising Album Release Listening Party - Friday, March 30th @ 11AM
'Detroit Rising - A Cosmic Jazz Funk Adventure' is a new release featuring current and former members of Parliament-Funkadelic, as well as guests from Prince and Lady Gaga's bands. It's futurist-retro funk and jazz written and played by some of the most badass musicians and singers behind many of the greats of the genre. The record is out on March 30th, through Light In The Attic, and we're celebrating with a listening party when we open at 11am on release day. We'll have some sweet t-shirts to give away with purchase and some treats and free coffee for attendees. Start the weekend off on the good foot!
ROGUE WAVE - Friday, April 6th @ 6PM
Rogue Wave are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 3rd album 'Asleep At Heaven's Gate' with a commemorative vinyl reissue and a new tour! They'll stop in Grimey's for a free live set in the shop on Friday, April 6th, at 6PM. 'Asleep At Heaven's Gate' was produced by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney, Elvis Costello) with Zach Rogue and originally released by Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records in September 2007. The album peaked at number seven on Billboard's U.S. Heatseekers charts on the strength of singles "Like I Needed" and "Lake Michigan." "Up to that point, it was the most magical and productive time we had ever had as a band," Rogue recalls of the Asleep At Heaven's Gate era. "Found sounds, field recordings, 4-track tape machines, all of these things were used in making the record. We wanted to experiment and push ourselves to make more adventurous music." On March 23rd, in partnership with Slow Down Sounds, Zach Rogue and company will reissue the album as a fully remastered double LP, packaged with new commemorative artwork, four rare and unreleased tracks from the recording sessions, and a cover of The Beatles' iconic "All You Need Is Love."
