Amestory - New EP

Amestory’s latest offering is their third for Portia and the follow up to 2006’s self-titled full length. They Can Sing Underwater finds the band departing from their light, heart-felt chamber pop to a bolder, more unrestrained recording of songs which echoes the disdain in current events. Do not be mistaken though; this is not a record of protest. Mike Russell (vocals, guitar) simply documents a wide array of conversations had and attitudes expressed in the past year, as well as his experiences on a cross-country Grey Hound trek which brought him directly in touch with Americana and culminated in tracks like “The March, The Parade,” a glaring critique of isolated suburbia.

Produced entirely in his own studio, Russell, along with JD Knotts (drums), Doug Prior (piano) and Derek Coburn (bass, vocals), has managed to capture the live presence of the band perfectly. With these four songs finally on record, the band will be hitting the road this summer and fall. Recommended!
