Drawing influence from post-rock and punk scenes, Prawn have released two full-length albums, two EPs, and three splits since their 2008 formation. Their latest, Run, was recorded in the space of just two weeks at The Barber Shop Studios, an aged lake-front stone church in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey. Although recording was prompt, the songs themselves were written over the course of two painstaking years. Touching on themes of isolation and alienation, Tony Clark expresses, “A lot of what came out was the sheer difficulty of truly relating to one another.” Punchier and more proactive, Run refines the sound of 2014’s Kingfisher LP - which swelled with both brass and string arrangement - by concentrating only on the instruments they’re able to play live. A significant release on its own terms, let alone as a building block to wherever this band might take themselves, Run is the sound of a band truly finding comfort in their surroundings and channeling it in to the most focused and exhilarating work of their life.
Caravela is an indie rock band consisting of brothers Frank and Stephen Graniero from Yorktown Heights, New York. Their debut release “Caravela Forever” dropped in March of 2015, produced with Gregory Dunn (Moving Mountains, Prawn) and recorded in both Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley. The release was supported with tours both national and abroad including dates in Paris, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Oslo amongst others. “Grand Prix” came next crafted in Los Angeles with producer Kyle Mangels (Braves) and mastered by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound. Art made with the gut and heart that sings the body electric, Caravela Forever.
