Durham, North Carolina’s Loamlands have announced their debut release, Some Kind Of Light, an EP of stirring Americana and Southern rock tunes penned by Kym Register and Will Hackney. The duo have collaborated for years, and the newly formed Loamlands provides a platform for each musician to express contemporary ideas through an array of Southern musical styles. Lead vocalist Kym Register delivers powerful tales of perseverance, justice and uncertainty, frequently blurring the lines between the personal and the political. Recorded in 3 days in rural North Carolina with members of Megafaun and Lost in the Trees serving as rhythm section, Some Kind Of Light is an essential introduction to one of North Carolina’s most exciting new bands. The EP will be out September 24 on Trekky Records, but you can pre-order your copy now from the Trekky Records Online Store.

On Sunday May 5th Cat’s Cradle will present Carrboro Block Party, a free concert in its parking lot featuring Lost in the Trees, The Love Language, and Loamlands. The community festival will include additional live music inside Cat’s Cradle and The ArtsCenter, food trucks, beer and more. The gates open at 4pm and the music begins at 4:30pm.

While the event is free to the general public, vouchers guaranteeing entry will be available starting April 9th. There is a limit of two vouchers per person and the voucher guarantees entry to its holder before 6pm. Carrboro Block Party is sponsored by Carolina Brewery, ReverbNation, Town of Carrboro, Fifth Season Gardening Co., Shuffle Magazine, The ArtsCenter, and Milltown.
