Giveaway: Three Pairs of Tickets to See Eluvium, Sleep Whale and Benouit Pioulard at The Loft on Sunday.
Eluvium combines minimalist electronic, piano and shoegaze music. Among mastermind Matthew Cooper's connections to the area is a remix of "So Long Lonesome" by Explosions In The Sky. Cooper's latest album Similies, which was released on Temporary Residence, includes more traditional songwriting and vocals.
Sleep Whale, meanwhile, is a Denton institution in folkish ambient music. They were featured on a DC9 Live at El Sibil a few months ago. Last year, the band changed its name from Mom to Sleep Whale after confusions arising during their European tour--something the band may have to explain when they open up for Eluvium on Mother's Day.
Also playing is ambient folk singer-songwriter Benouit Pioulard. Should make for a good show.
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
