Jason Urick and Ecstatic Sunshine are getting ready to embark on a European trek, but not before playing a handful of shows in New York and Baltimore. Jason and Matt are each responsible for influencing a lot of the great sounds coming out of our town, and look to spread more awe across the pond.
The tour starts with a local show at the Penthouse on January 17, and then heads up to NYC to hit the Cake Shop the 18th and Death by Audio on the 19th. After the click get all the European dates, and stream an old Ecstatic Sunshine favorite of mine.
Ecstatic Sunshine's Yesterday's Work has not been over five feet from my turntable since picking it up a few weeks ago, a late 2009 release that should be spreading to ears early this year. This time around the release is written and produced by Matthew Papich and Joe Williams, and this could be the best LP this revolving door project has produced. Peep the closing track of Ecstatic Sunshine's 2006 release below called "Little Dipper Big Dipper".
Jason Urick has been quite busy with an excellent Wildfire Wildfire split 7 inch with Jason Willett dropping recently and another 7 inch in the works with Fan Death Records. He headlined the Deacon show on January 1st, blasting ears with a hypnotically warped and intense collage of sounds. This is a tour that is most certainly not to be missed.
