MP3s of the Day: New EP From Green Sky, Playing a Sweat In-Store This Saturday

​Pity the hapless hipster who wanders into Sweat Records this Saturday night looking for a copy of Vampire Weekend's Contra. In an unusual but welcome change, the evening's in-store takes a turn away from the mellow indie and towards the grimy, in a four-band show organized by local trio Green Sky. The group's downtuned, sense-dulled guitar onslaught is distorted and fried enough to seem positively Torched, and well, that's no accident. Miami's best stoner rockers made good are an undeniable influence on this act, and Torche's Jonathan Nunez even produced the band's recent two-song Remote World EP. How they flip that influence and make it into something new will play out on the band's next EP, which is plans to record any day now.

Shroud Eater, meanwhile, were formerly known as Righteous Devices, and beloved by the Churchill's set for their coed take on dirty rock and roll. Under their new guise, vocalist/guitarist Jean, bassist Janette, and drummer Felipe slow things down and get more psychedelic, to our benefit. If you ever wondered what Kyuss or the Jesus Lizard would sound like with a healthy estrogen dose, well, here it is: Miami's answer to Savannah's Kylesa. The band's debut EP was released recently, mixed and mastered by -- surprise! -- Jonathan Nunez. The guy is turning into the Steve Albini of aspiring South Florida sludge rockers. 

After the jump, get full show details, and the free download link for Green Sky's EP.
