Venice is Sinking - Sand & Lines Review

I've been listening to Athens, GA five-piece Venice is Sinking's new release Sand & Lines nonstop this week. Recorded in the historic Georgia Theatre - host to nearly every one of the Athens biggies from the B-52's to REM to The Police to Colonel Bruce Hampton & Aquarium Rescue Unit - shortly before it burned down in 2009. Sand & Lines was recorded live in the empty dance hall and captures the tone and space of the room, giving the sound a depth not found on many albums. I reviewed the album for Deckfight, a blog of southern and independent music and literature. If you're interested in buying Sand & Lines, the album is available at www.veniceissinking.net and all proceeds from the album's sale are going to help the Georgia Theater's rebuilding efforts.
