[SmalltownAmerica.co.uk] We're very pleased to announce another new addition to the STA roster, in the form of Brighton's Crooked Mountain, Crooked Sea. Despite being named after a somewhat Silver Jews / Pavement combination, the band draw more sonic inspiration from the crunchier side of indie rock (Cursive, Fugazi etc). Since forming they have have embarked on tours with Hold Your Horse Is and Shoes and Socks Off and won praise from 6music's Tom Robinson.
Their first release for STA will be a six-track EP in late August, titled I Watched It From The Roadside, accompanied by a tour with Amateurs. Pre-orders for the limited CD version will begin at some point this month, so keep an eye-out on the STA website and the band's myspace. The band also have a couple of hometown shows coming up this month:
July 8 - BRIGHTON, Hector's House (with Los)
July 30 - BRIGHTON, Pav Tav (with Shoes and Socks Off)
[Don't forget the band are featured on Exploding In Sound's most recent compilation, In Case Of Evacuation, available for FREE download HERE!]
