|NEW ALBUM: ROPE & WINE|
Come down to Rocky Neck Gallery this Thursday evening, August 4th, and hear the rocking sounds of indie/folk band Fax Holiday as they will be playing from 6 - 8 pm adding sweet harmony to another festive Nights on the Neck The talented artists of this group are: Eric Schermerhorn, Ian Macleod, Elizabeth Bollenberg & Dana Diplacido.
From the "must read" site Shh, Listen by Jon Martin posted on June 21st, 2011 - here is what he has to say about Fax Holiday and their new album Rope & Wine.
"Fax Holiday is the recording/performing name of Eric Schermerhorn (formerly of Mutt and Margin Walker), and it is also the name of a Boston-based indie/folk band containing Schermerhorn (vocals, guitars, autoharp), Ian Macleod (bass, vocals), Elizabeth Bollenberg (violin, harp), and Dana Diplacido (percussion)."
"Their new album – Rope & Wine – is a solid musical effort – combining indie-rock numbers like “Dropping Out” with more introspective, folk-inspired tunes like “Salt.” Regardless of presentation, each song feels as if it is rooted in something that is deeply personal – coming to the listener as if from a diary entry. It’s a combination that comes up a lot in these parts (you might be familiar with a similar formula as seen in the work of Galaxie 500), and produces an amazingly vibrant emotional tapestry. Also, it rocks. Did I mention that it rocks?"
And special Thanks to Jon Martin!
