DeVotchKa

May 25, 2008

A to Z has some nice photos and a review of DeVotchKa’s show at The Pageant last Friday night. It was the night before I moved, so there was no feasible or responsible way for me to go. Having seen them at The Way Out Club and the Duck Room a couple times, I know the show was probably great.

New Jumbling Towers EP, Classy Entertainment

May 21, 2008

St. Louis’ Jumbling Towers just sent me a copy of their new 6-song EP, Classy Entertainment. It continues in the same vein as their excellent self-titled debut full length. Dry production, Rhodes piano, spooky synths and highly affected vocals. All in all, I like it quite a bit after just a few listens. I have included the new song, “Apartments”, below for your downloading pleasure. Download it, listen to it and see what you think.

I will have more details on how you can get a hold of the entire EP shortly, so check in often.

MP3: Jumbling Towers – Apartments

Tracklist:
1. Classy Entertainment
2. Apartments
3. Sal
4. Jeer
5. Fortune
6. Gamble
