Coastwest Unrest (playing a 21+ Treefort show at Tom Grainey’s at 8 p.m. tonight) will perform at 5 p.m. TODAY at The Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages — and you don’t need a Treefort pass to attend (but you should get one anyway and we have them for sale at the store).
ABOUT COASTWEST UNREST
The Las Vegas based band Coastwest Unrest is full of surprises. Comprised of brothers Josh and Noah Dickie, and violinist Alex Barnes, this is not a soft acoustic group; instead, they fearlessly take on an aggressive and dynamic approach with underlying hum of punk on some songs, and apply melodic textures to others. In the wake of their first album Songs From The Desert, they recorded Old Weird America, a raw album of songs on redemption, rebellion, loss and the American landscape.
The band’s most recent album High Times On Lowly Streets, added cello for a more layered and artful sound – without losing power. Performer Magazine gave them a top-pick, while The Alternate Root said, “there is a strong sense of Indie Rock on High Times on Lowly Streets, the use of strings against potent rock beats gives a sound nod to bands like The National and Ra Ra Riot.” Owl Magazine reviewed with “sometimes melodic, sometimes chaotic, always delicately composed and energetically delivered, the songs of Coastwest Unrest defy genre, but ring familiar.”
