Sound of Ceres

So, back in the day when I was playing with Races, we got to do a very cool show at The Echo with a band called Candy Claws. In a period of time in my life where all the shows and bands kind of bleed together in my memory, they were one of the few bands that stood out as being both very cool musically, and also really enjoyable people off the stage.

Anyway, fast-forward a few years to last week when I discovered that I was still on their mailing list, they are now Sound of Ceres, and one of the first shows of their current tour is here in Boise ID at Neurolux, on the 28th of this month. I noted that Jacob Graham is in the band, who is formerly (or currently but on hiatus?) of The Drums. Races was on the Frenchkiss Records label at the same time as them and Portamento was one of my favorite albums of 2011, so I considered it an auspicious sign that I'll probably like the new project.

I think their new single is pretty rad, and I'm definitely going to check out their live performance when they come through town.
