Nightlite Mary: Trash Heap / The Rise and Fall of Sandy Cesspool and the Chocolate Spiders from Uranus
Nightlite Mary has released a two-EP set “Trash Heap / The Rise and Fall of Sandy Cesspool and the Chocolate Spiders from Uranus,” available on iTunes, Google Play, and through all streaming services. Physical copies can also be ordered through nightlitemary.com.
“Trash Heap” is a five-song collection of Nightlite Mary’s brand of alt-rock, featuring rumbling guitars overlaid with banjos and harmonized vocals, recorded live in the studio. Disc 2 is a 12-track mini rock opera, featuring six songs accompanying dialog. “Cesspool” is a departure for NLM, filled with inside jokes, biting social commentary, and abandon.
The two-disc set is a return to form for the band, following singer/guitarist Daniel Lovell’s recovery from open heart surgery. It’s also the last recording the band will do at its longtime studio at a former spaghetti factory building.
Since the recording of “Trash Heap,” Nightlite Mary has moved to a new custom studio space, and has begun recording its next songs as a four-piece, with Paul Nolan and Daniel Lovell assuming duties behind the drums.
Nightlite Mary: Torture Devices
Rockshow Records is proud to announce its first full-length release: Nightlite Mary’s “Torture Devices,” available June 20 on iTunes, Google Play, and through all streaming services. Physical copies can also be ordered through nightlitemary.com.
“Torture Devices” is Nightlite Mary’s fifth studio release, and was recorded live in studio to capture the essence of the band’s live shows.
The album features Nightlite Mary at its best; the hard-driving straight-ahead rock of the opening track “Enough,” the brooding blues-influenced title track “Torture Devices,” the retro-rock of “Ghost” and the punk cha-cha of “FDA” show the breadth of influences on the band’s sound, which marries gritty guitars with banjo and accordion — a hallmark of Nightlite Mary’s music. “Torture Devices” is also the debut of drummer Dave Saville, whose power and versatility is an asset throughout the album.
At the heart of “Torture Devices” is the band’s dedication to solid songwriting. Each track focuses on life, love and loss — all with Nightlite Mary’s distinctive and unique blend of alt rock, punk, pop and more.
