Emporium Presents: Corey Smith

The way Corey Smith sees it, he owes a debt to his fans. And it’s one he is determined to repay with his 10th album, While the Gettin’ Is Good. The project, released on Sugar Hill Records, marks the first time that the singer-songwriter, a wildly popular touring artist who has produced all of his past efforts, has turned over the reins to a bona fide country music producer in Keith Stegall. The result is Smith’s most ambitious record yet, as well as a return on the

Great Good Fine OK

Great Good Fine OK

Is it possible to be nostalgic for the future? Brooklyn synthpop duo Great Good Fine Ok met one evening in 2013 and by the next morning had written their first song together, “You’re the One for Me,” a gauzy, heart-thumping anthem that hit #1 on Hype Machine twice in one month and instantly established the group’s sound with Jon Sandler’s dancefloor falsetto soaring over Luke Moellman’s lush post-Space Age production, the perfect soundtrack for retrofuturism. An EP, Body Diamond, soon followed, as did a slate of shows at that year’s SXSW festival and a deal with Neon Gold and Epic Records. In 2014 GGFO’s second EP, 2M2H, reached #10 on the iTunes dance chart and featured the St. Lucia collaboration “Something to Believe In,” which premiered on Entertainment Weekly. In keeping with this collaborative spirit, GGFO co-wrote and performed on The Chainsmoker’s single “Let You Go,” recorded a cover of Phil Collins’s “Easy Lover” with fellow Brooklynite Panama Wedding, and produced the song “Shapeshifting” with Irish folk-pop singer Orla Gartland, whom Jon and Luke met after their headlining show at Notting Hill Arts Club in London. They have also remixed songs by St Lucia, Foxes, Twenty One Pilots, Luxley,…

Velvet Underground Tribute

Velvet Underground Tribute

It was Brian Eno who said, “The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band.” Thus, indeed this quote indeed rings true here in Birmingham as well. We’ve put together a night of some of our finest local musicians paying homage to revolutionary unhinged sound that was fused together by Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, Moe Tucker, and Nico as well. In a time where rock and roll music was becoming increasingly sophisticated, intellectual, overblown, and having an ever-increasing demand for a virtuositic musicianship, The Velvet Underground emerged from the backstreets of New York City with a calm, cool, and collected style that merged pop art, street poetry, and gender bending ambiguity into music. This is one tribute night we’ve been looking forward to for a long time, and we’re predicting it will easily be one of the best and most inspired. We really hope you come celebrate the VU with us. Additionally, if your band is interested in squeezing onto to bill, please email: brian@saturnbirmingham.com. Thanks.
