TONIGHT, THURSDAY 5/28 ~ OIM Tape Release with Waterstrider + Guy Fox + Nyx at Leo's in Oakland
I really can't speak highly enough of Waterstrider's debut album Nowhere Now; its textured and vibrant sounds jump around from song to song, with many moving parts including hypnotic drums, deeply textured synths, and the cruising-altitude vocals of singer/guitarist Nate Salman.

But this show is not just about Waterstrider, or Guy Fox or Nyx for that matter. Because tonight, Leo's Music Club in Oakland celebrates the release of the OIM Records compilation tape. This release, which is volume 1 of hopefully many more, is a brand spankin' new comp organized by the newly founded Oaktown Indie Mayhem record label - which brings together a wide swath of talented local musicians on a singular awesome release.
