new azure ray mini-album as above so below out september, 7
As Above So Below marks somewhat of a departure from their original sound. It's sparser, more minimal and more
electronic, yet unmistakably AZURE RAY. Producers Todd Fink of the electronica band THE FAINT - who also happens to be Orenda's husband - and long-time collaborator Andy LeMaster (BRIGHT EYES, NOW IT'S OVERHEAD) left their distinctive marks. Listen to the first track "Scattered Like Leaves" on the player on the upper left. An album teaser can be found in the media section.
Next year will see Affairs of the Heart's 5 year anniversary. A giant achievement we keep telling us here and enough reason to celebrate the only way we know how. With Schnaps. Sorry, what I meant to say was music of course. MARIA TAYLOR, FLARE ACOUSTIC ARTS LEAGUE and UNBUNNY together on one stage. Come join us for what promises to be a series of memorable evenings.
