Addie Pray Not Leaving the Door Open at All Night Diner March 12

Addie Pray, a.k.a. Carmen Perry, of Ohio’s Sports catches listeners on her narrative line, with songs that provide an intimate fly on the wall perspective - not leaving the door open, rather transplanting you into her line of sight. Capturing intimacy in a realistic, relatable scale, she adapts it to life’s expected adventures and setbacks. What initially appears to be a simple picture gathers deeper meaning through binding details, à la Waxahatchee and Free Cake For Every Creature. Brandon Can’t Dance develop a twisting experimental pop paradigm. It's one with a constantly shifting position, engaging with it’s uprooted tones that range from fireside acoustics to eerie wave-rockers. The captivating lo-fi of Emily Yacina (who has collaborated with Alex G) is a sound you’ll feel instantly close to. The lineup is rounded into form by the hushed poetic folk of Yours Are The Only Ears.
