Sprawl - 'Irrealis' Album Launch
Time & Location
About the Event
After four years hanging at the water's edge, 回 SPRAWL 回 are heralding their fifth release: IRREALIS.
Accompanying their reemergence into the cautiously joyful landscape of others are:
✄ Rental Knives ✄, with their debut show! Self-described as a "Progressively Stupid Rock Band", they are obviously geniuses.
✯ Hi. Ok, Sorry. ✯, bringing in the night with bleak, yet strangely contented soundscapes.
☩™ Didion's Bible ✆™, preaching the good word of the suburban messiah in true art-rock stylez
ღ Con Art ღ, mashing the world's woes into a cathartic soup of noise and flashing limbs.
Coming soon in August, IRREALIS follows through on what is, rhythmically and creatively, a kind of emotional math. A sum whose answer is to forget about direction and embrace the question. In this way, SPRAWL explores what it means to be a point of view, delivering an image of experience as bound by a horizon of sensibility and animated by a struggle for coherence.
Crawling from post-punk to surrealist prog, through heightened moments of absurd release into contemplative fugue states, they set out to discover with an air of playful revelry. Sailors on a pithy blue sea, rolling the sleeves back and greasing the elbow! All grease is elbow grease - elbows eternally greasy.
