Universe People Release Debut Record

Posted by on Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 4:30 PM

Earlier in 2012, the local trio Universe People recorded 10 songs (all analog!) for their full length, and now it's finally available for purchase on Big Black Cloud Records. Australian born guitarist/vocalist Jo Claxton (formerly of the Intelligence) and bassist Kellie Payne crank out sweet vocal harmonies and angular guitar lines a la Grass Widow or Delta 5 over drummer Dave Ramm's steady Palmolive-esque percussion. I can't get enough of their occult sensibilities and their song "Druids," ("I am a woman / feel like such a downer / I wanna finish my mimossssa") Highly recommended for fans of awesome UK post-punk-pop and the X-Files.

Also, don't miss their album release show on March 2nd at the Rendezvous with the Tom Price Desert Classic and No Grave. Extra special guest The Professor Jake Stratton will be hosting the evening and helping give away records AND amazing Universe People posters designed by the incredible Nick Gucker.
