Music Around Town

Front Porch Lights EP Release (in the Supper Club)

When: Wed., Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m. 2015

This new music project was launched by Conor Standish of Burning River Ramblers renown. Front Porch Lights leans into the moodier side of Standish’s songwriting. (You may recall the contemplative “Where We Were At” > “I’m No Ghost” pairing from the Ramblers’ 2013 album. Take those feelings and light them gently like a candle; Front Porch Lights is music for dim lighting.) The EP’s opening track, “Blue Eyes and Red Poison” casts Standish’s voice across washes of guitar and deep keys. From there, the album dances across a dynamic range of moods and colors; “Kill ‘em with the Kindness” borrows from the poppier side of today’s electronic music, and “On a Little Screen” sounds like it could be a more soulful cover of a Ramblers tune.
