Unicycle Loves You
Skyflight Productions presents Unicycle Loves You on Friday April 13, 2012 at the Albert S George Youth Center in Barnesville OH. Unicycle Loves You, from Chicago, will be touring their third album "Failure" to be released Valentine's Day 2012. Once again handling the roles of songwriter and producer, Jim Carroll has dug even further into his Sebadoh/Guided By Voices-influenced home-recording roots for Unicycle Loves You's latest record, Failure. Due for release on Valentine's Day 2012, their Mecca Lecca debut contains all of the pop sensibility of earlier favorites like "Highway Robbery," "Justine" and "Mirror, Mirror" but with a rawer, more focused sonic palette.
Loaded with buzzing guitars in the red, highly addictive melodies, and lush boy/girl harmonies, Failure combines the best elements of 90s indie rock and dream pop for a refreshing Pop Art sound. While it may be the band's heaviest, thrashiest album to date, songs such as "Garbage Dump", "Sun Comes Out (And I Don't Care)" "Bitch Eye", "Piranha" and "Wow Wave Cinema" are also some of their strongest and poppiest moments on record.
Unicycle Loves You have shared the stage with such acts as Weezer, The Raveonettes, Fiery Furnaces, Telekinesis, Generationals, Art Brut, Tapes 'n' Tapes, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Bishop Allen & Crystal Antlers.
They have been featured in such print and online publications as SPIN, Filter, Pop Matters, Pitchfork, Venus Zine, Death + Taxes, URB, USA Today, Spinner, Sentimentalist, Chicagoist and NY Press.
