Anna's Ghost CD Release Show! Tonight!

Eternal Otter Records proudly announces the release of Anna's Ghost debut self-titled LP. The band will be performing live tonight at the EMPIRE with guests Dead Man's Clothes (with new band member, TJ Metcalfe, formerly of Lady Lamb the Beekeeper) and EverySmithEver. The cover is only $3 and copies of the album will be on sale. In keeping with Eternal Otter Records' aesthetic of creating lovingly packaged albums, each CD case is but one piece of a giant splatter painted canvas. Consequently, the artwork on each package is unique, dark, and mysterious- like the music contained within.

The Portland Phoenix gave a great review of the album in this week's issue, writing, "The band have retained the dark carnival atmosphere of their debut [EP], but moved beyond it, developing a disturbed and disturbing indie rock that is both operatic and bare-bones, enchanting and repellent... they've created a sound that's so painfully close that you feel every note in your gut."

You won't be able to get any closer than the EMPIRE tonight, so I hope to see you there. You can read the full Phoenix review here.

The album is also currently available at iTunes and will be appearing shortly at Bullmoose and other local record stores.

Before the show, I also encourage you to check out Frock 'n' Roll at SPACE starting at 7 pm. Local fashion designers (including Pinecone + Chickadee, who exhibited at the Tower of Song Festival) will have their clothes modeled by some of our town's finest musicians, who will also perform. Acts scheduled to appear include Spencer & The School Spirit Mafia and Samuel James (both of whom have released excellent new albums in the past 2 months), and Eternal Otter Record's own Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (who I believe will be performing a song that was written specifically for the event).
