Emotional Rec Club - Wednesday at The Canopy

Check out Emotional Rec Club during the weekly "Wednesday's In the Void" bill at The Canopy Club. The band recently finished recording a new record in Indianapolis, and will be mixing the record in the next month (most likely with CU wunderkind, Jon Pines).

Emotional Rec Club, the step-brainchild of singer/songwriter Joseph Donhowe (Imaginary Posse) recorded their first LP with producer Keith Cleversley (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Hum) at the Playground in Chicago. Cleversley's superb production allows Emotional Rec Club's bi-polar pop songs to jump off the album and resonate in your head. The album is animated by seasoned band mates Derek Niedringhaus (Castor, Sarge, Centaur) on bass, the drum stylings of Jason Milam (Love Cup, Mezzanines), and splashes of guitar riffs from now official member Kevin Cahill. Simply put this is a catchy and sonically pleasing album. Go ahead and pick a song, any song. The band's website is down for reconstruction, but you can listen to samples or buy the record on their cdbaby.com page.
