Two Sheds may have NorCal roots (and former members of Release the Sunbird, Port O’Brien, and Far), but now the band spends most of their collective time on Caitlin (vocals, guitar) and Johnny (bass) Gutenberger’s front porch in Eagle Rock. The creation of their sophomore album sparked when Caitlin wrote a plethora of songs over two days and all due to a dare. She later live tracked some of those songs with a band (including contributions by Mike Sempert) at Elliott Smith’s former space New Monkey Studio. The result is Assembling (Crossbill Records) –a raw collection of echoing indie rock unafraid to expose its folk soul or unleash its majestic potential. Here’s the album’s final track “When You Left.”
“I went deaf when you left.”
And its vintage visual companion:
Two Sheds continues their Tuesday residency tomorrow (July 14th) at Harvard & Stone.
