RECORD RELEASE SHOW

Eivind Opsvik’s Overseas – one of Sound It Out’s favorite bands – returns to the series to celebrate the release of the group’s latest album, “Overseas V.” Eivind has developed an utterly individual musical soundprint, one that blends the song-minded composition and creative studio craft of art rock with the virtuosic edge and spontaneity of progressive jazz. The fifth Overseas LP features the usual hooks-galore writing, imaginative production and sublime playing, along with fresh post-punk accents. The New York Times has praised Eivind’s series of albums as “strikingly modern” and “imaginative,” while All About Jazz has extolled his gifts as a “masterful tunesmith” with a vision for producing music “unlike anything else.”
