UPCOMING: The Sights - Alvins Detroit - 3.27
The Sights, a psychedelic blues-rock-power pop band from Detroit ready the release of their new album “Most of What Follows is True.”
The bands 4th full length was produced by the legendary Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Dirtbombs.) Hailed by critics and fans alike, The Sights continue to build on an incredible legacy of uncanny blues-rock-power pop.
Famed typhoon of rock and roll energy Eddie Baranek (guitar/vocals) is joined by Dave Lawson (bass/vocals), Gordon Smith (guitar, keyboards and vocals) and Skip Denomme (drums) to deliver incredible songwriting and electrifying live performances.With 2010’s “Most of What Follows Is True,” The Sights have achieved an unprecedented level of song and studio craftsmanship.
In an era of soulless keyboards, drum machines and Autotune, The Sights respond with thrillingly catchy songs. No gimmicks, no studio trickery – just rock and roll from the heart. The Sights combine the unobtrusive honesty of The Band with countless slivers of influence from their own personal record collections: Ike & Tina, Solomon Burke, The Everly Brothers, Bob Seger, Tim Hardin and all manner of raucous, infectious songwriting.To whet the appetites of their fans, the band have just released a limited pressing of 200 of “Silver/Gold,” a maxi-single (a 12-inch LP that spins at 45 RPM with grooves on one side only).
There are four songs on the A-side and the B-side is just smooth vinyl with a very cool screen-printed design on it. Two songs ("Ba Bump" and "Silver/Gold") will only be available in this format. The Sight’s precocious ability to blend frenetic garage rock with 60’s pop and create something equally classic and catchy has garnered worldwide critical acclaim. The NME wrote “(The Sights are) a revelation - a treasure trove of sparky and wildly immediate songwriting” while Rolling Stone commented, “at last - a new Detroit-garage band that comes in colors.”
The Sights legendary live shows have stunned and captivated countless audiences throughout North America and Europe. Lock up your daughters as the band have already begun moving and shaking across the country to a club near you.“Most of What Follows is True” will be released on April 23rd. The tour begins now.
