Today is a proud day for Inflated. Zula’s debut album is now available and it is, without a doubt, our most cherished release to date. Give it a listen over at SPIN and pick up some "Halloween Orange" vinyl (limited to 200 copies). Stay tuned for info on the release show next Wednesday, tour dates, and plenty of other Zula goodness.
Led by Robbie Stern (guitar) and Stephanie Davin (vocals), the debut EP from Post Louis comes brimming with promise. Stern built a name for himself early, playing guitar in Cajun Dance Party, but with Post Louis he has traded rollicking, rough edges for a more classic rock sound. Sweeping solos and blazing riffs are joined by Davin’s magnificent vocals, which manage to be both devastatingly fragile and calmingly tranquil; her lyrics are thoughtful and act as a gorgeous counter to the subtle electronic elements and swirls of feedback that surround the EP’s four tracks.
Post Louis will support Porcelain Raft later this month in Europe (tour dates below). While the band currently writes and records as a two-piece, they expand to include six members when performing live, creating a fresh sound that is as vital in person as it is on record.
