10x out April 23 on Brad Oberhofer’s new label, Local Singles
Brooklyn-based trio Celestial Shore announce their highly anticipated full length album. Their debut LP is entitled 10x, and will be released on Brad Oberhofer‘s newly launched label Local Singles, out April 23.
10x was mixed by Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), and features vocals by Lorely Rodriguez (Empress Of). Listen to the album’s first single, “Valerie” over at Stereogum.
The band will play a number of local New York shows before heading to Austin for this year’s SXSW Music Festival. Stay tuned for the group’s full SXSW schedule.
About Celestial Shore:
Celestial Shore’s debut EP California Eden clocks in at four tracks in seven minutes flat. In that brief span, it shifts gears recklessly between its multithreaded, intensely melodic motifs – the collected effect is one of gunning your ’41 woody straight off the pier, smack through the loop-de-loop, and out into the surf. The Brooklyn-based trio followed this EP with the Place Aux Dames 7″ on Double Denim Records, and late last year released a four-song all-analog split tape with Shopping Spree on Prison Art.
Celestial Shore will release their debut full-length record entitled 10x on Brad Oberhofer‘s Local Singles Records on April 23. Mixed by Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), 10x expands on the band’s earlier outings with more fully-developed song structures, offering more room to employ its growing bag of tricks – the odd beat dropped here or there, muscly breakneck spazzouts, and ecstatic wind-up reveries that immediately distinguish their sound and feel.
