As most of you all know, WKNC and Tir Na Nog do this thing called Local Beer Local Band Night. Each Thursday at Tir Na Nog we have a free show with great local bands and great local brews. This week’s line up is Regina Hexaphone and the Stars Explode. Also, tune in to 88.1 at 5pm on Thursday, as I will be interviewing Regina Hexaphone.
Here’s a qoute from the Independent Weekly about Regina Hexaphone:
“The rustling sun-kissed beauty and easy charm of Regina Hexaphone’s folky pop echo the sweet, generous vibe of frontwoman Sara Bell. Just as a wayward smile from someone attractive can brighten your day, nothing feels quite as welcoming as Hexaphone’s soothing sonic embrace. A preview of their forthcoming album, Into Your Sleeping Heart, is impressive, indeed, from the nomadic surf-inflected pop of "Waiting for the Wind” to the Dresden-bound gypsy bounce of “The Fortyniner.” Elsewhere, they work in a hazy, pillowy drift of receding detail, like a watercolor pulling away and over the horizon.“ –Chris Parker, Independent Weekly
"The Stars Explode is the new rock band led by Doug Edmunds, co-founding member/songwriter/drummer/vocalist for 90s rockpop underground wonders, Gladhands, and most recently the drummer for Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies. The Stars Explode builds on Edmunds’ musical legacy while looking squarely to the future. With influences ranging from the rugged British rock of Paul Weller to the loud guitar pop of the Posies to latter-day singer-songwriters like Grant-Lee Phillips, Jon Brion, and Rhett Miller, Edmunds’ new band offers up a delicious blend of musical offerings.”–the Stars Explode’s Myspace
