THE YOUNG SINCLAIRS SET LIVE DATES WITH THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE+RELEASE FAB NEW EP
Prolific Roanoke based band back with refreshingly cool new summer release!
For Immediate Release
May 27, 2010
Roanoke, VA – Just in time for those fun filled summer days – The Young Sinclairs mark their debut release via Planting Seeds Records with the fabulous four-song EP “We Spoke Our Minds” (PSR-065). The worldwide launch is July 20, 2010 on limited edition 7″ Vinyl/CDEP/Digital Download (includes bonus tracks). The music press has already begun showering praise for the band – Gorilla vs. Bear proclaims – “Extremely prolific 60’s pop throwbacks” while Magnet Magazine calls it “Jangly ’60s pop that almost makes us remember summer and a time before snowdrifts…the future is clearly overrated…” The Young Sinclairs have also been hand picked to support neo-psych-rock n’ rollers The Brian Jonestown Massacre on live dates set to kickoff on June 4th in Boston, Massachusetts and travels through to Washington, DC at the 9:30 Club.
Heavily influenced by the sonic landscape of the 60’s, the latest release – “We Spoke Our Minds” is full of shimmering guitars, sweepingly melodic vocals, and slices of timeless pop-nuggets. The moment the needle touches vinyl, The Young Sinclairs are off and running with the reverb-laden excitement of the title track. This is quickly followed by the raw jangly romp of “You Can Have Her” complete with a fantastic electric twelve-string guitar break and “Oh yeah” refrain. On the flipside ”Girl, I’m For Real” rolls out with its bass heavy induced groove, while the sweet harmonies of “Have A Home” takes flight and soars to new heights. The digital release contains two bonus cuts: The pastoral psyche-folk gem “Forever After” and the swirling atmospheric glow of “Memory System”.
The Young Sinclairs have been bringing their brand of psych/folk/rock (RIYL: The Byrds, The Essex Green, Rain Parade etc.) to the world since 2005 as part of Roanoke, Virginia’s the Magic Twig Community. The band features: John Thompson, Daniel Cundiff (Eternal Summers), Sean Poff, Jonathan Woods, and Samuel Lunsford (ex 63 Crayons). In their five years they have self released several full length LPs, EPs and cassettes. Along with their new “We Spoke Our Minds E.P.” the band has just released the 18-song vinyl only LP “Songs Of The Young Sinclairs” via Athens, GA’s Kindercore Records. In 2009 the band toured the east coast with Australia’s The Lovetones.
