Tonight, tonight! Blackberry Tongues release “We Are Open Mouths” at Ham ‘n Eggs!

January 15, 20150 Comments

The much-anticipated debut album from progressive fusion-everything band Blackberry Tongues drops today! “We Are Open Mouths” is the brainbaby of Lauren Michelle Davis, who wrote, arranged, sings and plays keys for every song. Accompanied by lush harmonies from drummer Sean Fitzpatrick and FX queen Kathryn Shuman, rounded out by huge bass lines from Rusty Kennedy, Blackberry Tongues have poured their sweat and blood and tears and love and probably lots of tea and coffee into this amazing new album.

The soundscape is a mishmash of metal, jazz and classical, with complex contemporary harmonies reminiscent of the likes of Schoenberg and Webern. The complex odd meters and polyrhythms constantly challenge the listener, taunting the ears between groove sessions with a constantly unexpected, always virtuosic sound.

The album release show will also feature the excellent Spaceman Band, then the Tongues, followed by a DJ set from the awesome BEFOREMAN. Cover is a measly $5 and we’ll go all night. The show is 21 and older. See you there!
