Exploding In Sound would like to introduce you to a new band coming out of Boston called Eolune. The band has released their debut album Canvas for FREE download via their bandcamp site, so be sure to check it out.
From the band's bio...
"Eolune is an experimental, Boston-based quartet that blends intricate guitar work with electronic arrangements, creating evocative sonic landscapes. Corey Wade and David Hunt have been playing in various musical projects together since middle school, but went their separate ways to attend different colleges. Despite the distance, the two continued to write and demo songs together, and Eolune is the result of that effort. A few years and countless Fung Wah bus rides later, Eolune has released its first official recording, Canvas EP. Recorded with Jonathan Schmidt (the current drummer of Morningwood) on drums, and mixed by Joe Costable (For the Record), this 6-song EP represents the first to come out of these recording sessions. With Corey and David sharing lead vocal duties and the addition of two new members, Josh Cuadra and Lorne MacArthur, Eolune is finally in a position to capitalize on the latent potential that has been growing over the years. Eolune is pronounced "ee oh loon" or "ay loon" (if you prefer)."
A message from the band regarding the release of Canvas...
"We are very proud to release our first official recording, Canvas EP. This effort was toiled with over the past eight months and features Jonathan Schmidt (Morningwood) on drums. The EP was mixed by Joe Costable (For the Record), tracked with the help of Will Tendy, and mastered by Mike Kalajian (Fine Print Mastering). Check out the full liner notes here. The physical version of the CD is now available.
Our decision to release the EP through a donation-based service called BandCamp, was based upon our desire for people to have access to this music. It is better to have our music in people's stereos than sitting in our garages or on our hard drives. We are more adamant about people listening to this recording than we are about making any kind of profit from it. If you download the EP for free and like it, we hope that you will come out to a show or tell a friend about us. Our ultimate goal is sustainability, not money nor recognition.
It is with that mentality that we have released the EP under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License. This license allows anyone to use the music for non-commercial purposes, provided that they follow the conditions specified by the license. We hope that you enjoy the EP.
We recommend that you listen to it as loud as possible while speeding down empty highways." - Corey & David
