Congrats to Beartrap founder Chuck Daley whose better half gave birth to a baby boy this morning! Oh shit, Beartrap rates just went up!
New Brunswick, NJ’s Communipaw and South Carolina-based music blog Sound As Language are excited to announce that the band’s Self-Titled debut full-length is now available for full Free Download on the site.
The record is the first in a new feature for the blog where albums and EPs of different genres will be made available for free with direct permission from the artist. The only criteria is that music be quality and of course, independent.
Led by singer/songwriter Brian Bond, Communipaw mixes its love of soaring, anthemic indie rock with a classic songwriting sensibility and a slice of alt-country. Along the way, the band has crafted a dynamic brand of indie-pop, building a reputation for originality in its hometown scene. This Self-Titled recording morphed into a year long adventure that brought the band to eight different studio spaces and inspired eleven new songs, experimentation, revision and reinvention along every step of the way. The resulting Self-Titled record illustrates at once a lush synthesis of the group’s diverse influences – from shoegaze to surf rock and everything in between – and a testament to the maturity of the band’s songwriting.
Communipaw plans to tour the US extensively this summer. Until then go pick up the album for free!
