If Carnival Season can last six weeks through Mardi Gras, who can blame Bedroom Rehab Corporation for stretching the celebration of their new "Red Over Red" CD over a few weeks?
Technically, what that means is that the band's Adam Wujtewicz (bass treatments/vocals) and Meghan Killimade (drums) will host a listening party from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight at the Telegraph in New London. There will be no official "album release" parties, per se, but BRC are playing big New London shows Friday at the El 'n' Gee Club and on Saturday, Jan. 26, in the Crocker House Ballroom as part of the Hygienic Rock Fix.
"Red Over Red" is a dark, brutal groove of a record produced with brilliant empathy by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth), and methinks you'll like it a lot.
