Scientific Maps E.P. Release Party in Albany, NY

Scientific Maps - Galvanic Wizardry

Scientific Maps are inviting you to celebrate the release of their new 7 song e.p., ‘Galvanic Wizardry’ on the B3nson Recording Company label. The e.p. was recorded late last year in the now defunct Bowling Alley Recording Studio by Aaron Smith (absent nickname: Rebel drum wizard) with some help from good friends. Cover art presumed to be by the brilliant Philip Pascuzzo, member of Scientific Maps and designer of some of the best book covers of the last many years.

The party is at Valentine’s, 17 New Scotland Ave., Albany, New York on July 31 at 9pm. Five bux.

Also stepping out will be:

Swimclub -These hitmakers were an outfit that rocked around the region in the late 90s, early 00s under the name ‘the Users’. We suggest you look these cats up on the internet, decide you love them, and then come out to see them on 7/31. Quite simply, their songs are perfect. This is a rare Albany appearance and shouldn’t be missed. [I have no easy way to verify this, but I’m guessing this is the same group that did the Sympony for Dot Matrix Printers, as heard in Radiohead’s The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of All Time, which by chance I was watching as I typed this out – Marc]

Salon Style – Gaven Richard has written some of our favorite tunes ever. One time Kamikaze Heart and drummer for Frank Budgen, Richard has taken on this new sample driven, loop based project and, once again, has wowed us with his hitmaking ability. Get ready and go!

Scientific Maps are also playing this Friday, July 17 at the Lark Tavern in Albany.
