Produced by friend and Omaha neighbor Graham Ulicny (Reptar, The Faint), this limitation on personnel would remain the only thing strict during the process. By removing distractions and relying on their own prowess, as well as pealing back the sound to create shorter, more direct songs, Twinsmith found that this laid back approach allowed them to focus on the same goals and to create something entirely for themselves. “The main goal was to makes something a bit more personal to us,” Smith says. “The last album was kind of in-your-face pop music and that’s why we made this so short and sweet; we wanted listeners to hear the small, distinct sounds we were working on. Because there were only a few people involved, we could make our decisions more directly. We wanted to make something we could use to relate to a bigger mass and bring people back.”
Stripping the words, the music, and the players down to their raw parts, Twinsmith have created a work of confident determination. Melodies soar and rhythms sway, the beats pulse with a laid back but urgent immediacy, and the simplicity of it all stitches the songs together in its mysterious way. From the simple three-color design of the cover to the process that created the sounds underneath, Stay Cool rewards with its ability to connect.
After several months of playing shows regularly, Salt Creek slowed down briefly to travel to South Dakota, working with Jeremy Schaeffer at All Poetic Audio to record their first EP, a five-song album entitled “Where Strangers Go”. The record was mixed by Mat Kerekes of Citizen and mastered by Doug Van Sloan. The indie post-rock style of Salt Creek reflects the unique and eclectic histories of each of the band members, their music drawing on the contrast between the simple honesty of the band’s rural roots, and their distinct and seasoned musical backgrounds.
Overslept has shared the stage with Lydia, Sorority Noise, My Body Sings Electric, Comrades, and Tigerwine. They have released a full length LP ("I've Been Keeping To Myself"); as well as two EPs ("Overslept/Father Mountain Split" and "That's Not Very Punk Rock of You").
Critics rave that Overslept is "A bunch of babies," "Ed Sheeran the Band," and "Too energetic for my taste."
The band's passion for playing makes their live performance an exciting and cathartic experience that creates an inviting air of community.
