Crying Shade: new, lo-fi pop rock from the Central District
"Crying Shade" by Crying Shade
Check out the maiden voyage of Crying Shade, above, the self-titled song from the Central District's newest band. The quartet's two-song debut, "Don't Be Shy," is downloadable here. The general tone of the tune is shakiness — but if you are schooled to this type of roughly recorded rock music you'll recognize the pop appeal of the bridge and chorus, and the special float and crack of vocalist Rachel Adams and drummer Cameron Case.
