Get out of this world as Arc Iris and Deaf Scene take you on the psychedelic spaceship. Don't get left behind. Stay weird. Arc Iris Released on Bella Union in Europe and ANTI Records in the US and, Arc Iris drew admiration for its innovative style and distinctive sound. It's hypnotic, said the Boston Globe. The New York Times wrote of songs that seesawed between the elfin delicacy of Joanna Newsom and some brassy raucousness. The Guardian talked of a shape-shifting treat while new music site The Line of Best Fit proclaimed, Arc Iris is traditional music thrillingly positioned at the nexus of the old and new. Deaf Scene is bringing their powerful blend of Post-Rock, Grunge, Progressive Metal, and Jazz-Fusion to the forefront of the Baltimore music scene and on the road across the USA. This ever-evolving instrumental prog-psych three piece has consciously embraced walking a musical road-less-traveled since their inception in 2010. Along the way they have cultivated a dedicated following with their sonically-expansive live performances and their solid studio work. Straddling a gray area between the progressive cacophonies of Tool, ethereal soundscapes of Explosions in the Sky, and the sludgy twinge of Primus, Deaf Scene has forged a sound that is uniquely their own. Dave Fullerton's effects-laden guitar melodies cascade over thick layers of looped sounds, while Eric Courtney's intricate bass runs and Brett Schatz's precise whirlwind of drumming give structure and groove to the chaos. What they're able to accomplish on stage, as a three-piece band with no vocals, often surprises listeners who have never seen Deaf Scene in concert. The band works together beautifully through seamless sets of original songs, intersected by ambient samples and drones, generating a sound that you would never imagine could come from three dudes (89.7 WTMD). 18+ $7
