Calabi Yau - The Elitist - 7"
Lunchbox Records #12 - released 2007
Calabi Yau hail from Charlotte, NC and have been around since 2004. They are currently working on a new LP/CD for release on Alone Records in late 2008. Over the last few years they've perfected combination of an upbringing listening to too much of the Skin Graft catalog, early no-wave, and a little D.C. post-punk rhythm and melody. They have a truly unique dual-guitar style with amazing drumming that relies much more on accents than beats, making a sound not unlike DNA. Calabi Yau have done several regional tours, one national tour and played with Pere Ubu, Lightning Bolt, Melt Banana, Kites, USAISAMONSTER, Xiu Xiu, Make Believe, Zs, Q and not U, Dan Deacon, An Albatross, Old Time Relijun, Raccoo-oo-oon, Yukon, Dysrhythmia, Des_Ark, Parts & Labor, Dove, Cinemechanica, Blame Game, Ahleuchatistas, New Flesh, Thank God, Daughters, Hex Machine, and tons more. They also run the Yauhaus, a local DIY house-show staple. This is Calabi Yau's first vinyl release after one full length CD on Din Din Records.
Robin also played in Safe Return Doubtful in 2007.
