Lake Inferior 10″ release show at Local 506, Nov. 12

with 9 comments

See a good show, get a new 10″ release and check out what one of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s newest student organizations is up to this Thursday at the Local 506.

Carrboro’s Lake Inferior will play to promote their new  “Pegasaur” 10″, which UNC’s student-run label Vinyl Records is releasing on the same date. (Did I mention the $7 admission price includes a copy of the new release?)

The upbeat electronic indie rock outfit were chosen by UNC students as label signees in an online contest after a concert last school year, (Lafcadio Shot Back and My Boy Rascal were the other winners).

Their experimental sound comes across as a little Paul Simon-y if he was currently in college and primarily listened to electronic music, (which is quite good in my opinion). Just check out “Gepeddo” on their Myspace page (linked above) and then watch the classic video “You Can Call Me Al.”

Judge if you think I’m completely crazy for making the above comparison:

According to the label’s Twitter, advance copies of the “Pegasaur” are available at Bull City Records in Durham. [map]

If you still aren’t convinced of Lake Inferior’s talent, check out a review of the Vinyl Records showcase from UNC’s Fall Fest by The Daily Tar Heel‘s Diversions blog.

The rest of the lineup includes rockers The Honored Guests of Chapel Hill and noise rockers Gift Horse of Athens, Ga.

Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and Gift Horse start playing at 9 p.m. $7 at the door. [map]

Sample more of Vinyl Records’ talent by downloading its free 2009 sampler. It has 1o tracks that feature all three current Vinyl artists and an intro by Lexicon.

  1. I’ll give it a try. It’s refreshing to know that current college students are familiar with Paul Simon.

  3. I credit my knowledge of Paul Simon to hours of compulsively watching Vh1 before I got MTV when I was 11.

  6. Young and old should be familiar with Paul Simon, and for those few who may not be I’ll bet this article will whet their appetite.
