Shows! Pete Samples at Apple Crisp
This Tuesday, another fine installment of the all-ages Apple Crisp Music Series is taking place at the Next Church. Headlining will be Pete Samples who will be joined by locals TimKnightUs and The Day Before Next. That is a whole lot of music for only $5 – but be sure to bring a few extra dollars to buy some tasty apple crisp as well as the Apple Crisp Records Sampler & Zine which is being launched at the show (more on that later).
Samples (aka Brent Freedman) produces really lovely, delicately electronic music. His latest albums are available online for FREE and they are well worth scooting over to his webpage to check out. Here is one track from the gorgeous mini-album “The Jumper Cables” which was released this past summer:
The Jumper Cables is a meticulously crafted gem of a record. Samples pieces together the six dreamy tracks from layers of electronics, soft – almost whispered – vocals, acoustic guitar, and glockenspiel which adds a child-like innocence to it all. It is going to be amazing to watch him piece it all together live onstage.
