Muncie, Little Silver, Reed and Caroline at Ivy Room
Greetings from Muncie, California! After releasing 6 full length albums and performing over 600 shows together across 43 states during the past 12 years, Vince Lay, Anna Kremenliev, Shane DeLea and Bob Mathre are Muncie, an independent rock, roll, swing and slide band based in Oakland, California.
“The elegantly understated debut from this Brooklyn band does what great, grown-up indie rock at its best has always done: It maps out states of personal, emotional and historical in-betweenness with careful, intelligent grace… Songs […] take their time building from muted beauty to closely held grandeur.”
Reed and Caroline
Reed Hays first used the Buchla Electric Music Box after hiding in an empty harp case in the basement of Oberlin College and sneaking into the electronic music lab after hours. Caroline Schutz, an art major, became an accomplished singer and musician in her post-Oberlin days with her bands Folksongs for the Afterlife and The Inner Banks.
