Eisley at Joe's Pub, August 2007
Eisley will hit almost every state on a two-month fall tour beginning in October, according to Mog. They'll be playing Gramercy Theatre here in New York on Oct. 21.
As one of the first bands I really got into, Eisley will always hold a special place in my musical heart. Their debut full-length, Room Noises, was a unique take on dream pop, with Sherri and Stacy Dupree's crystalline voices tracing fantastical narratives and soaring hooks. Alas, they never really seemed to break out, caught between mainstream pop (they're on Reprise) and the indiesphere.
Here's hoping their third album, which follows 2007's Combinations, expands their fanbase and gives them the recognition they deserve. Below, three-fifths of Eisley playing an acoustic "Golly Sandra" on UGO, from a while ago.
