This Just In: Dang!

I was working on some stuff at home a couple weeks ago and got stuck in a Soundcloud back hole. Sometimes the yield of that scenario is decent or at least good for background music without effort, but that night I stumbled on something that really made me stop and listen. I’m a sucker for old old old gospel music, which is something you don’t just stumble upon on Soundcloud. And Eola was no exception – because it’s not old old old gospel, it’s some old gospel and some new “gospel” done with just vocals and looping, and it’s freakin’ gorgeous. Reading the details revealed it came from Leaving Records, to which I loudly exclaimed “of course!” Leaving can pretty much do no wrong in my book, but that’s a rant for another time. Even you’re not a fan of gospel, it doesn’t matter – Eola is doing something with these songs that transcend traditional formats. Think a-capella Sung Tongs-era Animal Collective, but less wacky. There are three tracks below, so you can judge for yourself. There is also an insane in-stock list this week, so don’t forget to check that out as well! -MLE

Eola – Dang LP
Listen: Various tracks
“Edwin Mathis White (from the band Tonstartssbandht) creates a capella DIY gospel as Eola using loop stations and vocal processing effects pedals recorded to tape. On stage or on tape, Ed’s performance is dang spiritual. Edwin currently lives and grew up in Downtown Orlando, Florida but has spent the past 11 years living mostly in NYC, and sometimes in Montreal & Baltimore.” -Leaving Records
