The most recent band to be brought into the New Granada Records fold is The Winter Sounds, currently based in New Orleans and on the road in support of their just-released debut on the Tampa label, Runner. Produced by Scott Solter (Spoon, St. Vincent), the album is a triumphant high octane blend of New Wave synths and affected vocals, post-punk rhythms and catchy electro pop hooks. According to frontman/lead wailer/lyricist Patrick Keenan, "Each song represents a lost belief or some failed ambition. But, within each one there are personal realizations and revelations." Similarly anthemic psych pop twosome Sunbears!, from Jacksonville, round out the night’s uplifting musical festivities.
