Exploding In Sound Records and Shea Stadium are teaming up to release EISLive at Shea Stadium, a collection of live performances handpicked from the DIY venue’s extensive archive of live shows. The LP + CS combine to include tracks from 24 different bands, all of whom have both played at Shea Stadium and released music on the label, both past (Porches, LVL UP, Palehound, Krill) and present (Pile, Bad History Month, Baked, Big Ups), dating as far back as 2012. Complete tracklisting for both LP and CS below.

Today, Ovlov are sharing “The Valley,” captured live on June 19th, 2015 together with GoldFlakePaint. The site shared, “Taken from 2011’s What’s So Great About The City? EP, ‘The Valley’ is indicative of Ovlov’s hurried charm, the band ripping through the track’s two-and-a-half minutes in a flurry of noisy, gnarly guitars and Steve Hartlett’s rugged lead voice that never once pauses for breath, driving the whole thing forwards to its feisty end-point.”

After Shea was forced to close it’s doors this Spring, the venue launched a Kickstarter campaign to help with their effort to re-open. While the venue reached it’s fundraising goal in less than a day, ultimiately, their landlord decided to pull the plug on the 20 Meadow St. location. In the true spirit of DIY ethos, this record is a way not only to help raise money to help Shea find a new location, but to show the importance and the impact that these intersecting communities have had on each other. There is a tremendous amount of love and respect between these two factions, who have always worked tirelessly in the name of a thriving underground music scene in NYC and beyond.
A long time coming, this also marks the first live compilation of it’s kind (in physical format) from the venue or the label. The recordings were remixed by the venue’s founder Adam Reich, who has overseen Shea’s massive archive of show recordings from the past eight years and mastered by Mike Tucci.
