Nordista Freeze and Carver Commodore
July 14, 2022 @ 9:00 pm
Where did Nordista Freeze come from? Everyone who saw it happen has a different explanation, but they agree on one thing: a flaming blue orb came flying out of the sky and smashed into the earth, and there, lying sprawled in the crater, was a man wearing only his underwear with a tambourine in his hand. He rose to his knees, vomited profusely, and took off running over the rim of the crater and into the distance yelling “Na Na”. Where did he come from?!Maybe outer space? His first two records were called Space Travel and Cosmic Haus. Is he a time traveler from the past? His 60s pysch-pop anthems and bouncy flow say so. A time traveler from the future? Many believe he’s like a Terminator 2 Terminator sent back to save the music industry from self-destruction. All this is speculation. His origin notwithstanding, he’s brought a transcendent message, a secret of life that transmits through his legendary live performance.Come hear it and believe
Carver Commodore is an alternative rock band from the modest town of Florence, Alabama.The band is composed of guitarist and vocalist Payton Pruitt, guitarist Phillip Blevins, drummerNoah Freeman, multi-instrumentalist Clayton Christopher, and bassist David Smith Jr. In contrast to the “swampy, soulful sound” that put their hometown on the map, Carver is known for fusing garage, indie, and pop influences into stadium-worthy rock anthems. Modern alt-giants like Cage the Elephant, Jack White, and The Strokes tend to inform Carver’s guitar-laden hooks, recording aesthetics, and signature sticky songcraft. On October 22nd, 2021, the band released their sophomore album Welcome to the ModernWorld — a colorful collection of songs stemming from their recording sessions during the 2020lockdown. Tracked at engineer/producer Brendan St. Gelais’ home studio in Nashville, TN, the album also features Parke Cottrell (Colony House) as an instrumentalist and co-producer throughout. The thirteen tracks of Welcome to the Modern World aim to highlight the late-millennial experience of growing up in the early aughts and onward, detailing the effect it’s had on an entire generation. Carver Commodore is eager to share their cocktail of reflective and storied yet danceable (or moshable) songs on the road in 2022 and beyond.
