I remember when Imaginary Cities first sent me their music last June. Back then, they were just the duo of Marti Sarbit and Rusty Matyas. In a year, they’ve got themselves signed to Hidden Pony Records and at CMW they were mentioned in various CMW conference sessions as a band to look out for. For this live performance Rusty and Marti had a band backing them. Their music transcribed greatly to a live set. Their medium tempo-esque tunes was enjoyed by the audience and Marti did a great job with the vocals despite the not-so-great acoustics at Lee’s Palace.
