Pray For Sound – “Everything Is Beautiful”
Starting October off right with more vinyl to drool over on this week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK blog!!
The third release from PRAY FOR SOUND, ‘Everything Is Beautiful’, communicates the dichotic concept of light vs. dark without a single spoken word. Removing all societal participation built quite a euphoric experience for the band, and allowed them to find renewed creativity in their songwriting. Eleven new songs found on ‘Everything Is Beautiful’ feature turbulent guitar riffs and heart pounding drums accompanied by sweeping and all encompassing undercurrents of sound. I AM SHARK, AMFM RECORDS, DUNK!RECORDS teamed up to make this beautiful set of records for you to order!

When the singer/guitarist of a band spends nearly a year privately piecing together melodies on voice memos and scraps of paper, choosing deliberately
not to share with the rest of the band, the result could possibly be tumultuous. But for Ontario’s SAFE TO SAY, it ended up being just what they needed
The result of their unconventional process is an unconventional product, ‘Down In The Dark’. SIDEONEDUMMY RECORDS is your source!
