EYELIDS & the week that will be coming up and such

Hey everyone....  we had a really great time playing our show in California last week.  We just started an instagram account (musicofeyelids) and it was really fun to document the whole dang thing from John's egg obsessions to photos & video of live sets (including a barn burner with Tommy Keene joining us on stage in Los Angeles).  

Sign up and get these gems coming.  Click HERE to check it out!

 Magnet Magazine did a MP3 preview of our track "Forget About Tomorrow" saying "the song is short and sweet, and in accordance with their previous work, it’s also beautifully and expertly composed."  Click HERE to listen to it.

Here's a cool review from UK's Neon Filler which says "854" is an early contender for album of the year.  Read what they said HERE.

Pop Matters had the exclusive for our video "Psych #1".  If you haven't seen it yet get damaged HERE.

The Fire Note says Eyelids have "produced a record that is not only timeless but a lot of fun to spin again and again."  Click HERE to read the review.

--The Color Of Its Own Reward's review of "854" exclaims "Who knew that we needed a psych-pop masterpiece in 2014!  Apparently Chris Slusarenko, John Moen and their compadres did, because Eyelids’ debut “854” treads the boards of sunny melancholia better than anything in recent memory...."

--Fantastic review of "854" from the folks at IN YOUR SPEAKERS:

"The complexity of evoking opposite emotions within one song is an astonishing feat. Songs can mean different things to different people. It’s all a matter of interpretation, taste, and frame of mind. To construct a song, much less a record, which can co-exist as two personalities sharing the same identity, is awe inspiring. 854 consistently has the light and the dark and the ups and downs parallel to each other. Eyelids are for equal opportunity emotions."

A taste from the mind of the heart that is the sound that is Eyelids...

Hello everyone!  We've got a few quick things for you this week:

First up let's get you to the Portland Mercury where you can hear a track from our upcoming LP "854" called "Psych #1".    

Eyelids have a new song off their upcoming full-length album, 854, and while the title of "Psych #1" might seem generic, the music contained within is anything but. With cascades of acoustic guitars nestled against heaps of power-pop guitar, it's a concise slice of psychedelia of both vintage and paisley varietals. 854 is due out on the illustrious Jealous Butcher imprint on October 14, and Eyelids plays a FREE show this Saturday, September 27 at the Secret Society Ballroom; they're joined by Wild Bells and Paradise, and they're encouraging folks to come on down after Project Pabst. Eyelids have a few West Coast dates planned after that, and will return to Portland to play a record-release show on Thursday, October 30, also at the Secret Society, with the Minders and Denim Wedding. Plus they're recording a new EP in November with Peter Buck. In other words, Eyelids are busier than you."

Click HERE to listen to "Psych #1".

We also have are playing a Free Show Sat. Sept. 27th at Secret Society (116 NE Russell St., Portland OR).   Click HERE for more info.

Lastly next week we'll be posting so info about West Coast dates and other questionable goodies.

Thanks!
