The last time we heard from Ben Harrison and Stutter Steps was back in 2017 with the Floored EP; today we’re excited to share the news that the new LP, Reeling, is just around the corner. Upon first listen, there’s this wonderful timelessness that seems to resonate in the album’s first single; it’s got this careful bounce and this guitar sound that seems steeped in the history of rock n’ roll songwriting. I love how Harrison’s voice adds in this warm texture, matched by the melody that bubbles up from some sort of keyboard; there’s a fullness that comes from the way Harrison built up the sound throughout this tune. Look for Reeling on May 1st via Blue Arrow Records. (Photo by Noah Purdy)
Unfortunately, the line at Emos was ungodly long, despite the fact that doors opened a full hour before the show, itself, began. For this reason, and this reason alone, we were unable to catch Cale Parks, as we still waiting in line for our turn to get in the show. Long lines should have been an indicator for the kind of night everyone was in for at Emos. Follow the jump for more.
