Count Your Lucky Stars signs Cotopaxi and Recreational Drugs
Count Your Lucky Stars is excited to announce the two newest signings to the label.
Cotopaxi is the new project from Anthony Heubel. You might recognize him from his long-standing band Run Forever, but this project will have you seeing him in an entirely different light. Dark, brooding guitars and driving drums swim over somber vocals and poignant lyrics that match the weight of the music word for word. Think Pedro the Lion, Red House Painters, and Damien Jurado. CYLS will be releasing their debut LP in early 2016.
Anyone can tell you that being in an instrumental band better mean you are damn good at your instrument and creative enough to compensate for the lack of the vocals. The good news is Recreational Drugs pass with flying colors- which should be of no surprise, given the resume of Matthew Frank (Their/They’re/There , Lifted Bells) and Josh Sparks ( Into It. Over It., Former Thieves). Still, in this project they really shine, with movement after movement of contemplative and thoughtful guitar layers and drums that fit together like a puzzle. Recreational Drugs is not a band you just put on in the background to study-on the contrary, Recreational Drugs is a band you stop everything else to study. Think Ghosts and Vodka meets Unwed Sailor.
CYLS will be releasing the debut EP from Recreational Drugs later this year. Details coming soon.
