SISU, the recording project of Sandra Vu and Ryan Wood, is celebrating the release of its new EP Light Eyes (featuring remastered tracks from their 2012 EP Demon Tapes, Vol. 2) at Elbo Room this Friday, April 19 along with shoegaze-oriented local acts Young Prisms and Chasms. Vu (who also plays drums for Dum Dum Girls) and Wood will be joined by a live band consisting of Nat Keefer, Jules Medeiros, Dave South, Tito Echevarria, and Chris Stevens.
While physical copies of Demon Tapes, Vol. 2 are sold out, Light Eyes features two remastered tracks from that record, “Light Eyes” and “Two Thousand Hands” (listen to the earlier takes, above, via SISU’s Bandcamp page), as well as a new bonus song on limited-edition colored vinyl, due out April 23rd on Mono Prism. The Los Angeles-based synth-rock outfit also plans to release a full-length LP in June.
San Francisco’s favorite shoegaze quintet Young Prisms will headline Friday’s show at Elbo Room with a set of reverb-heavy garage-psych, likely accompanied by fuzzy visuals. Experimental guitar, bass, and drum-machine duo Chasms will open the show, following a series of successful Bay Area performances. DJ Rachel Aiello, aka TWITCH, will perform a DJ set.
Between April 23rd and May 5th, SISU will tour the U.S. with Marnie Stern, including a stop at Rickshaw Stop on April 28.
