Summer Library and more February Records news
February Records is still alive and kicking. Their newest release in their free digital singles series is Do You Ever? by Summer Library.
Summer Library is the solo work of Patrick Kelly from New Rochelle, NY. After a stint in a Pavement-inspired indie rock band, Patrick began recording as Summer Library, which takes its influence and direction from bands such as Galaxie 500, Brighter and Rocketship. The Swedish-sounding A-side is backed with Past The Railroad Tracks, which sounds as if someone might have snuck a synthesizer into a Field Mice song. Jangly guitars and catchy melodies pervade these two tracks. Download it at February Records.
The new The Tyler Trudeau Attempt 7" These Are Dark Times is out, and they put together a nice video companion piece. It was filmed and edited on analog film in New Haven, by Anthony Giordanella. The audio was engineered and mixed by Greg DiCrosta, with additional engineering by Nick Bellmore and John Mordecai. The audio mastered by Alan Douches.
There are still copies of the 7" single, "These Are Dark Times" backed with "We'll Win This One Yet," available.
