CD Release Show: Nevermores at Deluxe, Saturday, May 23 + MP3

Posted By on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 10:10 AM

On Saturday night at Deluxe, the Nevermores will celebrate the release of its new CD, Nevereverafter, with a show alongside TIRC labelmates Left Arm and the 75s. Sez Christian Schaeffer:

For too long Edgar Allan Poe has been the literary specter most associated with the ghostly pallored goth scene. But maybe Poe's dark tales and opium-fueled dreams are better suited for a rawer, more visceral brand of skull-thumping. At least that's the (partial) impetus behind the Nevermores, the local garage-rock band with an equal love of macabre storytelling and fuzz-bombed bass lines. The quartet's new TIRC Records full-length, Nevereverafter, bears songs with familiar titles ("Tell-Tale Heart," "Annabelle Lee") although it's hardly a doom-and-gloom affair for this band of lo-fi lifers: John Ebert's gravel-and-Stag voice pairs well with the two guitarists' Townshend-like flashes of bravado and driving riffs.
