The Evening Episode


Here are the quick logistics. The Evening Episode formed in Sacramento, CA in 2004 by drummer Ira Skinner and guitarist Brian True. The two enlisted vocalist/thereminist Teresa Eggers to write and sing over their programming and instrumentation, and shortly after, bassist Chris Loental joined, creating a more dynamic lineup, allowing the band to tour. Which of course they did, blanketing the west coast with a series of raw-nerve performances, thus capturing the attention of Slowdance Records. Read more on Last.fm

Which of course they did, blanketing the west coast with a series of raw-nerve performances, thus capturing the attention of Slowdance Records.

The result was a record deal, and eventually, a debut album, The Physicist Has Known Sin, due out on July 11th. Ok, we’re done with the logistics now. For the sake of one-line descriptions, The Evening Episode create an ever-evolving collection of both electronic and organic sounds that bloom into dark and melodic indie pop songs. Taking a cue from bands such as The Notwist and Portishead, The Evening Episode merge live instrumentation with a creative electronic backdrop, which adds an element of unique individuality and warmth to their sound. While Eggers’ breathy vocals maintain a personal nature and nervous sexuality to them, they also have a vast range and portray a level of confidence as a singer, and as a song-writer, that stretch far beyond her 20 years. Self-recorded by the band in their home-built studio, The Physicist Has Known Sin was a recording months in the making, as Eggers puts it, “we figured that doing it in our own studio would help us turn out more of a complete art project, as opposed to just a CD.” This commitment to creating art, as opposed to mere commerce, shows in The Physicist Has Known Sin, as the band expands from the rigid structure of electronic music, while politely kicking down the walls of what rock music should sound like. Of course, there is little that is sexy with borrowing an adapted quote from Dr. Robert Oppenheimer for an album title, but it’s a powerful line—one that speaks of the vast human potential—and as Eggers explains, “we’ve all been the physicist, in some way or another.” Read more on Last.fm.
