I've been very remiss in posting about local faves Sharks and Sailors lately -- sorry about that, y'all -- but as part of my penance, I feel compelled to mention that this member of the "H-town's Most Likely to Succeed" crew will be playing tonight, Friday, June 13th, up at Walter's on Washington. It'll be S&S, headliners Riddle of Steel, about whom I know nada, sorry, and fellow locals Motion Turns It On, whose last release, Rima, is slowly percolating its prog-rock-y way through my consciousness.
Sharks and Sailors are who I think will rule the night, though -- no offense to any of the other bands, but I can't think otherwise, esp. after viewing the band's Teresa O'Connor-crafted video for "Cliffs":
Nice. Nice... I've said before that I sometimes miss the "old" S&S, what with its turbulent, heavy-ass guitars and all that, but damn, seeing this video & hearing this song (again, mind you) makes me drop any reminiscing and prepare myself to crown them the Neu-Gaze Kings & Queen of our fair city. Sleepy-making, yes, but in a good way.
And I do like the video quite a bit, to boot -- Teresa's a very talented lady (and, truth be told, a friend from Ye Olde Band Days), and I love it that it looks like the band's playing in some weird Sleestak cave straight out of Land of the Lost. If you feel the need to check the S&S video out full-size and art-style, you've got until tomorrow, Sat., June 14th, to run by Lawndale Art Center & check it out as part of Teresa's show with Danny Kerschen & Lynn McCabe.
Of course, the video doesn't quite capture the true S&S live experience, so for that you'd better get on out of the house tonight. Show's at 9PM, y'all...
