This evening we welcome Slow Skate (from Seattle, WA) to our loft for an assuredly fantastic night of noir-ish folk (and maybe even a Def Leppard cover). At times reminiscent of names like Feist or Blonde Redhead (at their mellowest) we think you'll dig the way their brand of atmosphere takes over our shop. We're very excited to see them ourselves.
Here's a little blurb about their latest 7" release "St. Valentine": "Love Bites," for those that recall, is one great monster ballad by the one and only Def Leppard. It's been covered magnificently by Slow Skate and is available on a 7" single titled "St. Valentine." Limited to 300 marble-colored records, the packaging is oh so eco-friendly (recycled chipboard, vegetable based inks) and oh so good. Sadly it's only two songs (the aforementioned Def Leppard gem with the smooth "St. Valentine"). - Three Imaginary Girls
