Shakey Graves announces a new EP coming September 21 that will feature live performances of the tracks “Cops and Robbers” and “Counting Sheep” from his NPR Night Owl session that occurred in his hometown of Austin at SXSW earlier this year. The session was filmed at the historic Saengerrunde Hall.
In addition to the EP, Shakey Graves adds new show dates to his extensive international tour (known as The Tour Tour Tour Tour Tour Tour Tour Tour Tour), which originally started in May and will now continue through mid-December with over 80+ total performances. Last month, Shakey performed to a sold out crowd at Morrison, CO’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. He is currently routing through the US and can be seen at Austin City Limits Music Festival in October before heading to Europe and back to the US for the additional dates. In combination with the EP release, tickets for the newly announced shows will also be on sale September 21, available to the public via shakeygraves.com.
Shakey Graves’ new album, Can’t Wake Up (Dualtone), has received praise for veering from the inevitable to the revelatory; its thirteen songs teeming with jarring musical and thematic collisions and thrillingly seamless intersections, gnarly psychological hornswoggles and ecstatic resolutions. Central to the prevailing sense of disorientation are the lead vocals, none of which is purely solo. Instead, each lead performance is shadowed by a queasy harmony or slightly out–of–sync unison part, giving the sense—especially on headphones—that these voices are emanating from inside the listener’s head.
KOLARS is one of those rare acts which descends from another dimension, struts its sequin skin, blares it’s unabashed musical thrill ride and leaves audiences with their mouths on the floor.
Rob Kolar twists and turns as he sings imaginative lyrics with a raw swagger. He spins his guitar as notes sail and scramble through the room. A presence that embodies elements of Elvis and Marc Bolan with a ragged punky edge. The magnetic, one of a kind, Lauren Brown uses her whole body as a percussion instrument, tap dancing rhythms with her feet while playing a full stand up kit with her arms. An alluring hybrid of Mo Tucker and Gene Kelly with a dash of Iggy Pop wildness. Yes, there have been iconic duos before but none like this.
The two set up side by side sharing center stage. There is no front woman or man to this band. They share the spotlight, encouraging the other to take a risk and push their art.
On record KOLARS are slightly more subtle and nuanced. Rob produces and mixes the music and has created a genre melding soundscape influenced by his film scoring. The band has inspired evocative descriptions such as “space blues”, “glam-a-billy” and “desert disco”. The style combines elements of new wave, blues, pyschedelia, glam, folk, disco and punk. The production experiments are infused into the live show. In essence, the duo are a hybrid of modern technology and raw rock and roll.
The aesthetic and fashion sense of the band lives in a similarly daring world. The two often seek out rare vintage pieces and design much of the stage attire themselves. Visually there are glam, sci-fi, teddy boy, goth, and western themes. Sequins and mirrors often reflect dazzling light shows for the audience. When asked about the reflective aesthetic Rob replied, “Well we couldn’t afford our own light show so we figured we’d just become one ourselves”.
KOLARS have toured extensively across the US, Canada, and Europe, playing many festivals and concerts in front of thousands. They have headlined national tours and have shared bills with Spoon, LP, Julian Casablancas & The Voidz, STRFKR, The Kills, Best Coast, Shonen Knife, RZA, Pussyriot, Built To Spill, The Horrors, The Growlers, Alanis Morissette, Funkadelic, The Revivalists, Father John Misty, The Roots, Nikki Lane, Strawberry Alarm Clock and many others.
They have built their momentum through hard work and tenacity, growing their following one fan at a time. They tour relentlessly and do much of the work themselves. The husband and wife duo treat the business like a growing mom and pop startup. Rock and roll with an entrepreneurial spirit.
