Liz Brasher In-Store Performance/Signing

Liz Brasher stops by Seasick for an in-store performance/signing on Sunday, February 24th at 4pm! She'll be playing songs from her debut album, Painted Image, which is out now via Fat Possum Records!

Liz Brasher makes her own kind of southern music — one that's caught halfway between the garage, the church, the bar, and the bedroom. She's a soul singer. A guitar-playing rocker. A one-woman girl group. A gospel revivalist who worships at the altar of the Box Tops.

It's a diverse sound rooted in the influence of Brasher's two homes: her adopted hometown of Memphis, where she recorded her debut LP, Painted Image, for Fat Possum Records; and her childhood stomping grounds in rural North Carolina, where she was raised in a musical, multi-ethnic household.

Gaelynn Lea In-Store Performance

Classically trained violinist and songwriter Gaelynn Lea Music has been bewitching scores of fans with her haunting original songs and experimental takes on traditional fiddle music. Her work most recently won NPR Music’s 2016 Tiny Desk Contest, a competition drawing submissions of original songs from more than 6,000 musicians across the country.

Gaelynn Lea’s musical reach has expanded significantly because of the Tiny Desk Contest. She began touring nationally in September 2016 with her husband Paul in their 2002 Ford Econline – and they’ve been on the road ever since! View her tour schedule here.

Gaelynn also does speaking engagements about disability, finding inner freedom, and the power of music. Gaelynn has a congenital disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or Brittle Bones Disease. In recent years, she has used her music as a platform to advocate for people with disabilities and to promote positive social change.

Groundhog Day 2019 at Seasick!

Groundhog Day 2019 is upon us and we will celebrate!

- $1 RECORD SIDEWALK SALE
- FREE CAKE
- BILL MURRAY LOOKALIKE CONTEST*

*Come by the shop dressed in your best Bill Murray Groundhog Day costume and you'll be entered to win a $50 Seasick gift card! Do not have to be present to win. Winner will be chosen Sunday, February 3rd.

Groundhog Day is a popular tradition celebrated in the United States and Canada on February 2. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early. While the tradition remains popular in modern times, studies have found no consistent correlation between a groundhog seeing its shadow or not and the subsequent arrival time of spring-like weather.

Mandolin Orange "Tides Of A Teardrop" Listening Party

50485345_1744438395657979_1582969974295625728_o.jpg

Come out to Seasick Records on Thursday, January 31st and enjoy many orange colored/flavored items (mimosas, orange creamsicles, Cuties, and more!) while listening to the wonderful new album "Tides Of A Teardrop" by Mandolin Orange. We'll be giving away a signed copy of the album and other MO merch!

Mandolin Orange’s music radiates a mysterious warmth —their songs feel like whispered secrets, one hand cupped to your ear. The North Carolina duo have built a steady and growing fanbase with this kind of intimacy, and on Tides of A Teardrop, due out February 1, it is more potent than ever. By all accounts, it is the duo’s fullest, richest, and most personal effort. You can hear the air between them—the taut space of shared understanding, as palpable as a magnetic field, that makes their music sound like two halves of an endlessly completing thought. Singer-songwriter Andrew Marlin and multi-instrumentalist Emily Frantz have honed this lamp glow intimacy for years.

Young Valley In-Store Performance!

Young Valley stops by Seasick this Wednesday, November 7th for a stripped down in-store performance before their show at The Nick! Don't miss it!

Jackson, Mississippi's Young Valley offers points of view from songwriters Zach Lovett, Dylan Lovett, and Spencer Thomas with a trading of styles from traditional country to southern-tinged rock 'n roll. With the addition of Kell Kellum and Ethan Frink, the 5-piece group lays out a catalogue of catchy melodies, harmonies, and plenty of guitar shred all packaged into well-crafted tunes. "We service the song" they said to Mississippi Today in a recent interview. "Wherever the song takes us, we need to go." This mantra has kept them honest in their approach, and just like their hard-to-look-away kind of stage show, you don't quite know what to expect next from Young Valley.

NULL "Act Of Love" Record Release

NULL
ERTHLING

7PM / $7

Null return with their second LP, "Act Of Love", a meditation on heavy psych, droning heaviness, and repetitive chants in 8 songs. Underscoring the haunting melodies formed by trance-like guitar lines and sung vocals is a swamp-thick sludgy bass tone, created by fuzzed-out synth and pounding drums. Null feature members of punk champs Coliseum but appeal more to fans of groups like Lungfish, Om, and Cloakroom.

The band has spent a couple years honing the sounds on this record after their initial LP, as well as a string of splits with bands such as Self Defense Family and Husband Stitch.

Austin Lucas In-Store Performance

Austin Lucas In-Store Performance

Austin Lucas has come home.

It's been over two decades since the songwriter packed his bags and left Bloomington, Indiana, the Midwestern town where he spent his childhood years falling in love with rock & roll, embracing his punk roots, and standing his ground whenever intolerant locals didn't understand his way of life. He returns to that place—both creatively and physically—with his seventh studio album, Immortal Americans. Written after a tumultuous period that found Lucas getting sober, supporting his partner through a battle with cancer, and breaking up with his longtime record label, Immortal Americans is a clear-eyed album for murkier times, rooted in stripped-down heartland rock songs that find the artist reflecting upon the changes in both his hometown and himself.

Austin will perform in-store at Seasick Records on Friday, August 31st at 6pm. Come pick up a copy of his new album “Immortal Americans” - out now on Cornelius Chapel Records.

Fozzy (feat. Chris Jericho) Signing

Fozzy (feat. Chris Jericho) Signing

Fozzy will stop by Seasick Records to sign copies of their new album "Judas" this Saturday, August 25th at 12pm!

Tickets for their show at Saturn Birmingham are available here: https://www.saturnbirmingham.com/event/1693500-fozzy-judas-rising-tour-birmingham/

The band Fozzy has really always been about one thing: having fun. What started out for guitarist Rich Ward as a weekend cover band soon became an internationally signed act with the biggest star in professional wrestling, Chris Jericho, as its lead singer. Their first few releases still had Fozzy playing covers but with adopted stage names and a backstory written for the movies. When you have such high-energy performers like Ward and Jericho – it still is debatably on who jumps higher, Ward on stage with his guitar or Jericho in the ring – creating a ‘for fun’ band was easy, however Ward and Jericho aren’t just entertainers. Ward is probably one of the greatest and unjustly so, underrated riffers in rock and metal today. Jericho singing ability and overall passion for music makes one wonder just how he is able to find the time to excel in pretty much everything he does. It was these qualities that pushed the band to drop alter egos, get rid of the backstory and write original music. 

Over the course of the next 7 years, the band did just that; three albums worth to be exact. The records were fit in between Jericho’s wrestling, TV and writing career. It wasn’t until 2012’s Sin & Bones though that the band really started to hit their stride. Jericho was winding down his involvement with sports, the band was touring more than ever before and their live show was as strong as ever. The entertainment, the fun factor, the showmanship were all there and in full force. More so than any point in their band’s career.
