I first caught wind of the The Cranberry Show when they dropped Paranormal Karaoke project back in February of 2012. Becoming hooked from the very first track, I’ve been keeping tabs on the midwest alternative duo ever since. So when I heard about their next project — the one you are checking at this very moment — I definitely wanted the Dopehouse involved in some form or fashion. So, without further adieu here goes the world premiere of The Jellyfish Theory. Stream/download after the jump.
The thing with shedding light on new artists at the dopehouse that most people don’t seem to understand is time. Not only do we have to find the time to actually open the email and read the jibber jabber inside, we also have to find time to give it a solid listen, develop some feelings towards the music and decide whether or not we’d like to post. Seems simple if the day wasn’t already as hectic as it is and we only got 1-2 submissions a day right? But that’s not the case. In between my design work, planning for SXSW, showing attention to the misses and maintaining the site itself, I’m left with little to no free time at all. So when I get bombarded with emails, Twitter @s, etc it’s easy for me to say “fuck it” and keep it moving. I honestly try to listen to as much new music as I can but it’s physically impossible with the 50-11 up and coming rappers that seem to pop up on a daily basis. So… unplanned rant aside, here goes something new from the Milwaukee duo The Cranberry Show. A 10-track project that serves as a follow up to their 2010 release, Sex and Pencil Shavings. Tracklist, stream and download link after the jump.
