Ida Mae In-Store Performance

Seasick Records & Birmingham Mountain Radio present: An in-store performance from Ida Mae!

Ida Mae makes a stop in Birmingham fresh off of a tour with Greta Van Fleet. Their debut album "Chasing Lights" will be released on 6/7, but you'll be able to pick up a copy of the album a day early only at Seasick Records!

Blending elements of vintage Delta blues and gritty rock and roll with boldly modern arrangements and fearless punk swagger, the record captures Ida Mae in its purest form, with Turpin and his longtime musical partner Stephanie Jean performing nearly everything live in the studio under the guidance of legendary producer Ethan Johns (Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, Kings of Leon). It’s an electrifying collection, the kind of record that feels both familiar and groundbreaking all at once, fueled by dazzling musicianship, breathtaking harmonies, and the sort of versatile, timeless songwriting that’s earned the band tour dates with everyone from Greta Van Fleet and Blackberry Smoke to Marcus King and The Lone Bellow.

Delivering an infectious blend of soul, jazz and rhythm & blues, the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio proves to be a band on the rise. Their tantalizing grooves, lush sounds and vibrant jam sessions are always fresh with improvisations strengthened by their undeniable chemistry. This Seattle based trio — Lamarr on B-3 organ, Jimmy James on guitar and Keith Laudieri on drums — evokes a classic instrumental sound with a pioneering, virtuosic sensibility all its own on debut LP Close But No Cigar. Featured on Seattle’s KEXP’s “Local Artist Spotlight” in July 2017 followed by a live performance at Upstream Music Festival broadcast by KEXP that has garnered over 5 million views, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio has captured the attention of audiences around the world. The band put out their album independently in 2016 and Colemine Records gave it a wide release in March 2018 to critical acclaim.

ERRA Meet & Greet/Signing

We’ll be hosting Birmingham metalcore heavyweights ERRA for a meet & greet/signing before their first local headlining show in three years!

Purchase tickets to the ZYDECO show here: https://zydecobirmingham.com/ticketweb-more-info/9186095/erra/

errasigning.jpg

ERRA is a five-piece progressive metalcore band hailing from Birmingham, Alabama that formed in 2009. Their namesake comes from Akkadian mythology and represents mayhem. The band, consisting of Jesse Cash, Sean Price, Alex Ballew, and JT Cavey, solidified their technical sound after relentlessly practicing and writing. They take their influences from well respected groups like Misery Signals, Born of Osiris, and Saosin, and thrive on being creative and showcasing their talent through their intense live performances. ERRA takes great pleasure in offering their refreshing sound in a sometimes stale and over-saturated market. It’s not about fashion or status; it’s about using raw talent and energy to create genuine songs that will give hope to the listener.

Liz Brasher In-Store Performance/Signing

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 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.

Groundhog Day 2019 at Seasick!

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.
