It List: Monday 9/18/06

Just to let you know, Sarah Reddington had to cancel their show at Rubber Gloves tonight due to some health issues with one of the band members. However, if you're into SR, you might still want to head up to Denton (or stay in Denton, depending on where you live) to check out Wichita's Paper Airplanes, who will be playing at Rubber Gloves with Tex Winters and Judah Johnson. If sounding like Band of Horses, the Shins, and Arcade Fire is a crime, Paper Airplanes are probably guilty as charged, although we can let them off on probation due to the fact that their songs are a bit more interesting than the rest of that lot. Ethereal, dreamy and lush, their music mixes bits of americana with bold neopsyche orchestration, synth textures and a slight prog rock influence that provides a good helping of nervous build ups and a hint that the band might be able to take their well traveled formula farther than most of the other flavors of the month. They are like a more friendly Akron/Family, and I'm actually surpised that they haven't received more attention than they have. Listen to "Belovedaire Rough Mix" to see what I mean. If these guys can pull this stuff off live, we could be in for a real treat tonight.

Paper Airplanes are really good live. Peter, guitarist/singer from Sarah Reddington, may've fractured his elbow, so we'll be out for awhile.
