Australian songwriter Jo Schornikow (who is also keyboardist in Phosphorescent) has a stunning new album coming out on May 10th called Secret Weapon. It's a devastatingly beautiful indie-pop album that eddies into dreamy nooks, while staying firmly rooted in strong melodies. It's a quiet record, adorned with subtle swells of synths and shimmering washes of guitars. Jo's calm, assured voice is that of a touring musician who's spent much of the past 10 years on the road in Phosphorescent and The Shivers and is now very much at home in this world. She's been the secret weapon to other songwriters, but now she's stepping out and sharing these gorgeous songs. While her partner Matthew Houck's band Phosphorescent carves a wide swath through cosmic country, Jo's songs thrive in a dusk-lit territory neighboring pop, shoegaze, and ambient experimental music. These are very much folk songs, but translated through the tools Jo Schornikow has at hand. We're pumped to welcom Jo Schornikow to Grimey's for a free, all ages live performance the day before her new album is released - Thursday, May 9th, at 6PM. We'll have copies of Secret Weapon for sale at the in-store so not only do you get a free show, but you'll get the new record a day early.
