For a city in the middle of the continent we sure produced a lot of songs about swimming and about the sea this past year…
(“Sea Legs” by Dragons Power Up! (from their split single with Puppies and Trains – It’s the record pictured up above)
(“Monsoon Day” by Jezebel Jones and her Wicked Ways (this was an outtake from their new CD – You’re hearing a Hymie’s blog exclusive!)
(“Salt in my Mouth” by Buffalo Moon)
(“Karen, You’re an Angel” by Sleeping in the Aviary)
Anyway two bands from back east on the coast (New York) – Nelsonvillians and Wind Up Bird – will stop by and regale us with story and song likely of the sea Wind Up Bird does a saucy arrangement of “Bang Bang”, my favorite Atlantic sea chantey.
