pree In The Parlor by Pree

Who : Pree from Washington, DC.

What : Ex Le Loup member May Tabol has formed a new group called Pree that’s ready to let us hear their debut 5 song EP (A Chopping Block ) on March 24th. Sounding a little like Regina Spektor doing Modest Mouse , expect a mix ‘haunting folk elements, unmistakable vocals, and a remarkable command of words to elicit a fare as delicate as it is powerful’. I’m liking the song below and the live session on AON (check IMF.tv ).

Song : In The Parlor .

So far he (Eric Elbogen) is two-for-two here with songs from the upcoming album Oohs & Aahs (Barsuk, March 3rd). Again, we’ve got echoes on the vocals but this time eight ‘Ohs’ at the end of each chorus.

From their website, “War Child: Heroes is an unprecedented collaboration between musics most heralded legends and the finest current artists.” War Child asked 15 artists and bands (including U2, Brian Wilson, Joy Division, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen) to select a song from their back catalogue and to nominate the a new act (including TV On The Radio, Duffy, Elbow, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hot Chip, The Kooks) to create a unique interpretation of it. The album was released in the UK by Parlophone and internationally by EMI on February 16. Head here for more. Here’s the tracklist.

I heard Beck‘s version of Bob Dylan‘s Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat leading out the Oscars the other night. Gotta say, even though its not his song, its a great piece; quite closer to a time when I was a bigger Beck fan.
