SPELLS1Composed of veterans from several past and present local groups, SPELLS brings it’s unique brand of good-time “vacation rock” to the stage this summer, in support of their upcoming 7″ release on Snappy Little Numbers Quality Audio Recordings.

Of course, regular listeners of the show already knew that, since we debuted a new track from the as-yet-unreleased 45, titled “Slice Away”, on Local Mix Monday for 5/27.



Today, I sit down with Charlie “Continental” Stimsell, to discuss the origins of the group, why they are inspired by beaches, and their upcoming release party.

Having had the pleasure of witnessing their live show firsthand, I can assure you that the release party will not disappoint, and rumor has it that the show may include a set from former members of the local scene, Eyes and Ears. But you’ll have to listen to find out more…
