Steve Adamyk Band – Graceland LP Out July 29th

Graceland Art 4x4

Blame Canada. Or for that matter, Ottawa. The Capital’s kings of punk- power-fuzz are back and better than ever. After a whack of records and worldwide touring, “Graceland” is Adamyk’s most dynamic and cohesive record to date, without breaking the mould. Colleen Green (Hardly Art) sings on it, Mike Krol  (Merge) croons on it and members of Sonic Avenues are now staples in the band.

This time, the band bunkered down in Montreal with engineer Adrian Popivich (Solids, The Dears) to bring Graceland to life. In the meantime, scream along to “Through My Fingers”, or get lost in the depths of “High Mile”; the choice is yours.

Fourth album in 5 years from Mark Ryan’s shadowy, shape-shifting “solo” band.

Based in Ft. Worth, TX, Mind Spider’s launched pretty much immediately after Mark’s last project, the well-loved, highly-influential Marked Men went on indefinite hiatus at the beginning of 2009. (and Dirtnap Records agreed to put out their debut 7” and LP before even hearing the band!)

Earliest recordings were Mark playing more-or-less everything (except drums on some tracks), but since then the Mind Spiders lineup has been continually evolving, with Mark remaining the sole songwriter and constant member.

On this album, the lineup is Mark Ryan (Marked Men, Radioactivity, High Tension Wires, etc), Daniel Fried (Bad Sports, Radioactivity, Video, High Tension Wires, etc), Mike Throneberry (Marked Men) and Peter Salisbury (Baptist Generals/Sub Pop Records). Currently, the live band is a guitar-keyboard/drum 3 piece featuring Mark, Mike and Peter.

 Each Mind Spiders album has been different from the last. With that said, Prosthesis is probably a bit less of a stylistic departure from their last album (Inhumanistic, 2013) than from previous work. The album clocks in at a brief 8 tracks, however the songs tend to run a little longer than normal, really giving the individual songs room to breathe and grow.

Keyboard and guitar blend seamlessly into ominous, bleak (yet somehow still super catchy!) dark pop explorations, also incorporating postpunk, bedroom pop, krautrock, and tons of other obscure references along the way.

The first Mind Spiders album to be recorded at Mark and Jeff Burke’s (Radioactivity, Marked Men) new Cool Devices studio in Ft. Worth, this is easily their best, fullest sounding effort yet! Prosthesis also is the first Mind Spiders album to be mastered by Mark himself.
