EYELIDS "854" 13 Song Debut LP--Last Few!!! 2nd pressing!


Eyelids :: 854

Limited Edition Vinyl LP--Comes with download card.

Principal songwriters John Moen and Chris Slusarenko have turned inwards to their loves of New Zealand/Flying Nun guitar buzz, their teenage L.A. paisley underground obsessions, haunts of early Athens and all things beautiful, lopsided and rock. Along with members Jonathan Drews (guitar), Jim Talstra (bass) and Paulie Pulvirenti (drums) they push and pull against each other's songwriting, in a beautiful tension that just works. Their critically celebrated debut 7” SEAGULLS INTO SUBMISSION got airplay everywhere from BBC Radio to WFMU and was also included in MOJO Magazine's Editors Picks of The Month.

With 13 songs, most of them clocking in at less than 2 1/2 minutes, their debut album “854” is full of what Eyelids describes as “sweet melodies and bummer vibes”.  It makes us remember when our favorite songs could be both melancholy and buoyant— the same songs could make you feel justifiably sad or on the next listen make you feel incredibly happy and empowered.

With a collective history of creating music for some of the most legendary indie songwriters these longtime Portland, Oregon collaborators were not only the principal instrumentalists for Robert Pollard's post Guided By Voices band Boston Spaceships for over eight releases, but they have also worked in recent years withStephen Malkmus, The Decemberists, Elliott Smith, Sam Coomes of Quasi, Black Prairie, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Loch Lomond, Damien Jurado andPeter Buck (who is producing their upcoming EP this Fall).

The album will be available October 14th, but you can preorder your copy here (postpaid in the U.S.--shipping outside the U.S. will be added later).
