Artist Of The Month
What a special way to begin the year. If you follow us regularly then it comes to no surprise that we would only have great things to say about Brooklyn band Conveyor. That is because with every release so far they’ve been able to hypnotize and charm us into hitting that repeat button.
In January of 2011 the band teased with the release of “This Building Is For Everyone“. A quirky, upbeat track, that doesn’t seem promising at first but gradually evolves into something nothing less than majestic. Available as a digital copy only, the track can be downloaded free of charge below or on the band’s Bandcamp.
A few months later in April, Sun Ray [EP] saw the light of day. The mood of Sun Ray is just what its title suggests. With its bright tones and warm shades it was fitting that it would come out in Spring and accompany its listeners all the way into the Summer. Sun Ray has the soul of an endless Summer of love. Vivid, and fun, and certainly set to leave its mark. Available as free download below or for $10 on a Limited Edition orange vinyl.
Three Carols [EP] was released in September of 2011. This is the first installment of a planned series of four releases on tape with custom-made, hand-stenciled packages (limited to 25 copies each). Three Carols is a perfect example of how much can be accomplished with an acoustic guitar in the right hands. The release was, instrumentally, a stripped down version of the band though not any less captivating. Where Sun Ray was a beam of light, Three Carols is a cool Autumn afternoon watching leaves fall.
Conveyor‘s latest release is “Mukraker” from their forth-coming debut full-length album (which we eagerly await). It’ll also be released on a split 7″ which is set to feature fellow Brooklynites Illuminator on its B side. “Mukraker” doesn’t stray from that special formula Conveyor have mastered. They encapsulate simple lyrics, beautiful harmonies, and great instrumentation in four minutes. As a band, Conveyor have this natural ability to shine beauty where other bands might just not make the cut. To that we say: shine on Conveyor!
