The Sudden Lovelys (CD-release)
Based on quantity of output alone, the Sudden Lovelys have had an impressive run so far: Since forming in February of last year, acoustic duo Danny Ferraro and Paige Prescher have recorded an EP and three full-length albums together. What's even more impressive, though, is that their band name rings true through the dozens of tracks on these albums—they are, seemingly out of nowhere, suddenly quite lovely indeed. Ferraro's modest guitar playing and Prescher's airy soprano are the main focus of their full-length debut, Red Rose in a Yellow Army, released in February, which was followed by two more LPs, Liquid Silver and Big White Circle. Though the albums were recorded within months of one another, you can hear Ferraro and Prescher gaining confidence on their later releases, Ferraro driving the momentum with a stomping foot and his low, growling voice. As a body of work, the three albums tell the narrative of a couple discovering each other musically, and it's a beautiful story to behold. For their triple CD-release show, they will be playing two sets and issuing all three volumes on vinyl. With Bill Patten and Midnight Social Hour. (Photo by Vanessa Meade)
