beat radio: shows this weekend & download the great big sea LP

 

hello everybody. 

brian1.jpgthis is brian from beat radio. i hope you are well.we are very excited to announce that we’ve completed our debut LP, The Great Big Sea.

Because we’d like to spread this music as far and wide as possible, we’ve made it available as a free download at www.beatradio.org

We hope you enjoy the record. 

We’re celebrating all this by playing 2 really wonderful shows this weekend.

Friday we’re down on the Jersey Shore at Asbury Lanes, which is one of our favorite venues, with some great bands called The Butterflies of Love, and Birdie Num Num and the Spirit Squad.  that show starts at 10.

Saturday night we have a big show at Union Hall in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  We’re playing with 2 really amazing bands The Soft Lightes and Cassettes Won’t Listen.  That show starts at 8 and we’re on first.  Union Hall is at 702 Union street just off 5th Avenue.  Hope to see you there.

check out this fantastic review of the LP over at I Rock Cleveland:

This always happens to me. Whenever a high profile indie release comes around, (let’s say The Hold Steady, for example) something else with a lot less hype ends up keeping my attention and that big release sits in a stack somewhere. That low profile release stuck in my sound system is The Great Big Sea by Beat Radio.The Great Big Sea is the debut LP by Beat Radio. They had released the six song ecstatic EP in 2005. Those six songs are included in The Great Big Sea along with five new compositions. Frequently compared to bands like Broken Social Scene or Dean Wareham’s bands, Luna and Galaxie 500, Beat Radio specialize in thick, lush, and meticulously orchestrated indie rock. These songs will sound great on your home sound system and even better on a good pair of headphones where you can dissect each distinct layer of sound.From the easy going “Ancient As The Stars No 2” (accented with banjo and keyboard) to the epic sounding (in the best way possible) “Elegy” on to the irresistable jangle of “Everything Is Temporary”, and everything in between, I’m hooked and I’m diggin it. For an album mixed betwen new recordings and old, there is a surprising amount of cohesion. It’s skillfully sequenced into one compelling work perfect in scope and in mood for gray days, rainy days, and even those days when things aren’t so bleak.Among the new recordings, I am most enamored with “Another Loveless Anthem.” The foundation is the emotionally weathered voice of singer Brian Sendrowitz as he laments, “This is the end of modern romance/This is a matter of survival/I am another loveless anthem/Playing on your top 40 station.” It’s neatly rounded out by layers of static beats, radio static, and an endless violin loop.In the end, the more I listen the more I love. Beat Radio is going to stay in my system and that stack of high profile new releases is going to grow.

The Great Big Sea by Beat Radio is an 8 out of 10 on The Mighty RockometerNow, if I was in New York this weekend, which I’m not, I’d be making my way to Union Hall in Brooklyn to catch Beat Radio with The Soft Lightes and Cassettes Won’t Listen.”

Hope to see you guys. 

cheers,

brian
