“From its inception, Valleys has been always changing. From the quiet and exploratory preliminary years to the stormy experimentation of recent works, the duo has always had one foot in the pop realm and the other in the dirt. Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night? is the result of a year’s worth of writing through unexpected loss and spiritual recovery. Working with meditative and spatial elements, Valleys aims to blur the lines between noise, melody, repetition and space results in a dark, mysterious and cinematic quality to their sound. “

Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, BandCamp and Twitter. They play Pittsburgh tonight at 6119 on a bill with Sleep Experiments and Yxu in support of their soon to be released, “Are You Going to Stand There And Talk Weird All Night?“. I want to thank Marc St. Louis for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
