After issuing a trio of EPs since 2012 —
originally on old school cassettes — and a live album back in January,
the current incarnation of Cincinnati’s Old City concluded it was time
for a proper full-length release.

Engaging one-man Indie/Ambient project issues new EP, plays live tonight
Veteran local Indie musician/songwriter/producer/label operator Sammy McKee, known for projects like Bitter Airplane, view-finder, Hyperstatic, fotos, Embers is Sammy, Kaptain and Charlston Entry, is back with a brand new solo project, Old City. McKee has completed three EPs of new music so far, including Building Blocks, which he literally finished and posted just last night. An uniquely atmospheric, mood-shifting collection of ElectroIndiePsychPop that at times is reminiscent of Bowie's Berlin trilogy, the entrancing ambient tracks on Building Blocks are some of McKee's best to date. It should be interesting to see how McKee pulls Old City off in a live setting. And tonight is your chance. Old City performs at The Avenue in Covington tonight with another pair of relative newcomers — Cincy Indie rockers The Ivorydales and Northern Kentucky Indie/Rock/Soul duo Young Colt. The free show kicks off at 9:30 p.m.Here's Old City's hot-off-the-presses EP Building Blocks. Click here to check out some of McKee's earlier Old City recordings.
