When Buffalo experimental pop spectacles Lesionread and Space Cubs first toured across the USA in 2015, they met with the fact that there was a lasting connection between them worth exploring. This year the two local producer/singers are teaming up once again to unleash music together, coming out with a "Summer '16" split cassette.
"Like any good musician, Lesionread knows how to morph, transform, and evolve." -- Cory Perla of The Daily Public
Lesionread first became known for a punk devil-may-care approach toward a colorful and theatrical style sharing the stage with international acts like Mac Demarco, Melt Banana, and Neon Indian. Over the years while traveling as a solo act, Lesionread garnered the attention of many fans as well as attained fantastic reviews via Bullet Media, Impose, Flavorwire and more. Today Lesionread is a full live instrumental band, comprised of Jamie Sunshine on drums (of Volver), Reggie Clark on bass (of Planet Three), while still lead by the creative vision of Shawn E. Lewis. The band was recently featured as a 'band to watch' Buffalo Spree's WNY Music Issue, with a focus on the new band dynamic.
"Lesionread does not throw your typical play-the-set and-go-home type of shows. Abstract images appear on a screen, colorful lights flash, and people in red suits dance on stage as the band performs. For many, this is what original music in Buffalo looks like" --Sara Ali of Buffalo Spree
Suzanne L Bonifacio started releasing music officially as Space Cubs in 2011. Digitally processing her own gospel inspired vocals, her music reverberates powerfully with a satisfyingly haunting quality. Her beats pulsate and twist with the finesse of artists like Aphex Twin and Bjork, earning her big crowds performing with Ratatat at Grand Rapids Theater last October, and a new partnership with Unspeakable Records out of LA. Chris Daly of "Passion Of The Weiss" describes it as "Mood music for smoked out dungeons in the crackiest parts of your city."
