Soapland Releases Debut

Posted 22 Feb 2012

Friday night at MOTR Pub in Over-the-Rhine, local Indie/Electronic band Soapland will celebrate the release of its first recording effort, Inflatable Real. DJ Mowgli will also be on hand to spin some tunes to dance to. Though only four tracks, the enticing EP is an excellent introduction to the crafty group’s electronic-tinged soundscapes, engaging vocals and creative songwriting. With a lineup of veteran local musicians from bands like Roundhead, Viva La Foxx and the Wolverton Brothers, among others, the foursome was one of the best new bands around when they emerged a couple of years ago. With Inflatable Real, you’ll be tempted to change that to just “one of the best bands around.” Friday’s show will also celebrate some different talents of Soapland’s members. Singer Amy Jo and guitarist Steve Metz will be exhibiting their artwork for the Final Friday-timed event; Jo will display drawings while Metz will show some of his photography work. As always at MOTR, there is no cover charge the entire night. Search for Soapland’s profile at ReverbNation for an early listen to the release.
