Positive Beat Presents: Cains & Abels.


Chicago's alt-folk up-and-comers Cains & Abels are celebrating the LP release of their 2009 full-length Call Me Up on Positive Beat Recordings, and you're invited! Led by David Sampson and his wavering vocals, sprinkled with gritty, minimalistic guitar and drums, Cains & Abels present the listener with what they consider "the most real and honest music we can make." Sampson implants a glimmer of hope among a barren wasteland through his powerful, yet subdued, vocal delivery that definitely carries the weight of the band's style in sound - think Neil Young-meets-Gordon Gano - which is no minor accomplishment considering the delicate duality inherent in the band's name as well as their mixed and modeled sound.

Call Me Up was released on States Rights Records in 2009; Positive Beat Recordings is re-releasing the album on vinyl LP, available January 18, 2011. The band will tour in support of the release of the LP in 2011.

Below are door times and details:
