From The Deli's Open Blog: Grandfather play Cameo on 09.18

New York based three piece Grandfather fashion dynamic, intense and violently rhythmic psychedelic rock. Far from a traditional power rock trio, the band creates a massive, caterwauling maelstrom from the simple concept of allowing each instrument to reach its sonic peak. Conjuring the sounds of a band twice its size, their music is ripe with complex melodies and a lockstep rhythm section, set against the tempestuous guitar riffs. The band recently recorded their debut record, "Why I'd Try" in July, 2010 with stalwart engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies). Firm believers in the raw, unencumbered sound of the analog recording process, Grandfather and Albini have managed to capture the band's frenetic, live-in-the-room intensity and created a singular, ruminative and altogether bracing introduction to their world. "Why I'd Try" is available for FREE download here. Grandfather will play Cameo Gallery on 09.18 at 10.30 - free admission. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).
