Paper Garden Records is beyond ecstatic to announce the release of the self-titled debut LP from Brooklyn’s CONVEYOR this Summer (July 17, 2012). Having only teased the world with an EP and a few singles so far, Conveyor has already made a big impression on the blogosphere, earning accolades from Consequence of Sound, We Listen For You, Earmilk, I Guess I’m Floating, Listen Before You Buy, Baeble Music, Yvynyl, and BPM. After returning from a successful SXSW 2012, Conveyor are getting ready to embark on a summer of tour dates that include the Fringe Festival (Montreal) and NXNE (Toronto) the weekend of June 15th, back to NYC for their record release show at Mercury Lounge on June 28th, and a full national tour in support of the LP that begins the very next day.
We are very proud to welcome Conveyor to our family and we can’t wait to share their music and their songs with you.
Conveyor is a Brooklyn-based music project spawned by the fated juncture of a wandering tarot of musicians in Gainesville, FL. Was it kismet or perhaps a primordial summon which led these gentlemen purveyors of sound to individually tune in and migrate North to the bustling seductress known as New York City? Their retort is Sun Ray, a debut EP birthed and released in the warm embrace of Spring 2011. Brimming with lucid, homey synths layered over acoustic guitars and harmonious vocals, they channel extraterrestrial bible-thumpers drenched in love, spouting acid-soaked pop unabashed to beam with the simultaneous embrace of life/death realities backed by a polyrhythmic, pulsing backdrop. A decidedly grand task indeed, and following a string of self-released, handmade EPs, they are releasing their debut full-length album in 2012 with Brooklyn’s Paper Garden Records, a testament to our nature and the nature of ourselves.

We have been hooked on Conveyor ever since their EP “Sun Ray” landed on our doorstep. (Note to bands: handing out your music on freaky orange 12″ vinyl is one sure way to get a label to give your demo a spin.) Unfortunately, we caught wind of this Brooklyn based quartet too late and missed out on their CMJ show. Apparently they impressed a few folks so much that We Listen For You decided on “Sun Ray” as the first ever We Listen For You Record Club selection. Now we have three copies of this beautiful wax at Paper Garden & Lovely Hearts Club headquarters and in no way is that depressing! Conveyor has this rare ability to repeat the same few lyrics over and over and over with their folk-inspired melodies and catchy synth to the point that you feel it in your bones. BreakThru Radio has pinned them as a hybrid between Iron & Wine with Caribou but we can’t shake this feeling that they are channeling their inner Aqueduct at times.
Well out with the old and in with the new in 2012 because One Thirty BPM has just premiered a new track called “Mukraker” and have deemed it Conveyor’s best song yet! It definitely has got everyone we know excited about their forthcoming full album. The band has also began locking down tour dates across the entirety of the US for Summer 2012, so be on the lookout for a live show in your town!
You can stream the track here or head over to their bandcamp starting January 2nd for a digital fix, until the 7″ split with fellow Brooklynites Illuminator is available. Conveyor has also brought us a delicious new treat in the form of BreakThru Radio’s Hear & There session, where they cook up a stripped back version of “Mukraker” in a posh Williamsburg kitchen. Even though the band is extremely busy making new music for us they still find time to chat with fans on the internet so get to following them on Twitter and Facebook. Hope to see everyone who lives within a 30-mile radius of Glasslands on January 5 as Conveyor gets down with ILLUMINATOR, Teletextile, and fellow Lovely Hearts Club band, Snowmine.
