Between Sheets & Walls
The DROPZINES: A COLLECTION OF CIRCA 1930'S PERIODICALS DEDICATED TO ESSAYS ON NATIONAL DEPRESSION AND MASS EXHAUSTION. The Dropzines (pronounced: drop-zeens) is the latest smash Indie-Pop trio to come out of Pennsylvania. Dropzines' Music can be described as an eclectic mix of savory Harmony-Indie Pop served up in bite-sized morsels. Although appealingly confectionary to the ear on first taste, there lies just beneath the pleasing candy veneer, a dark center composed of witticism and melancholia; and strewn throughout are the razor shards of sarcastic cynicism. All of which, promises to be audibly accessible and intellectually stimulating. Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist, Shawn Stabley, brings to The Dropzines his rich past of musical experiences on tap. Formerly of the now defunct New York City faction, The Most Sordid Pies, Shawn recorded the album, Grit & Sunshine along side producers John Siket (Sonic Youth, Phish, Yo La Tengo) and Kramer (Shimmy Disc Records), utilizing legendary rock recording facilities, Bearsville Studios and Power Station. Accompanied by the distinct yet unorthodox bass guitar style of Tony Romanell and the beautifully paired vocal harmonies and percussion of Jason Kline, The Dropzines bring you their debut album. With a flair for brilliant 60's harmonies laid atop ballads of angst, loss, solitude, and indifference, 'Between Sheets and Walls' guarantees much more beneath the musical surface and from a fresh perspective.
