(SCENE) is pleased to host the return of Amhurst, Massachusetts-based ARMS AND SLEEPERS, a duo who travels with a full-time video projectionist. Arms And Sleepers, who can be alternately described as "cinematic" and "transcendent indie-electronic," has been praised by Oregon's Eugene Weekly for their wonderful 2007 full-length CD Black Paris 86: “Arms and Sleepers’ music is about evoking stories from the subtle disintegration and regenerations of life, capturing fleeting moments when humanity reaches a crescendo but there’s no one there to witness it.”

Make sure you're there on August 16 to witness it.

The members of Troy/Clawson-based instrumental indie/shoegaze band SUNLIGHT ASCENDING are all between the ages of 13-17, yet the band has created quite a stir with their Mogwai-esque sonic constructions. Having recently completed a self-titled 5 song EP, the band displays a sensibility akin to the more ambient side of Godspeed You Black Emperor! or the more distorted and propulsive side of Kranky artists like Jessamine. Part of an increasingly sophisticated set of young bands emerging from the Detroit suburbs (such as The Muldoons and The Displays), Sunlight Ascending has been featured at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit's celebrated Sonic Lullabyes Festival with such acts as Auburn Lull, Rx Gibbs, Soundpool, Indian Guides, and Kindle.

Beginning the evening is the not-to-be-missed Grand Rapids-based experimental electronica/shoegaze trio SPECTRAL MORNINGS, whom URB Magazine hailed for their "quality sounds, choppy drums and ethereal explorations" as part of their "Next 1000" list for 2007. Boasting members from such like-minded side projects as Conifer Rock and Centre (both of Square Root Music notoriety, a label which refers to their sound as "bionic pop" on its website), Spectral Mornings particular brand of electronica is aimed straight at the brain, via melodic hints and groovy allegations.
