It is a rare occassion that a band is so good a Seattle venue will ask them to come back again in the same year, let alone the same month. Such fortune has befallen on local lo-fi lyricists Thousands, who will be playing every Tuesday at the Sunset Tavern this month, accompanied by different guests each week. This week, fellow Seattle songsmiths Mike Dumovich and Song Sparrow Research will be making an appearance.
Thousands are gearing up for their first overseas tour through the British Isles, as well as their first album release. They signed with Bella Union Records just as 2011 rolled in, and they are releasing their first LP, titled “The Sound of Everything,” in March (which we will definitely be purchasing). The duo, made up of Kristian Garrard and Luke Bergman, employ delicate acousitc guitarwork with understated harmonies and pastoral lyrics.
If you can’t catch them this week, check them out next week. Or the week after.
