ANOTHER SWELL SLAB OF WONDERFULLY WRANGLED ROMANCE
After last year's free cover tune celebration of amorous, loincloth clad cherubs, Love Will Reign Supreme, the slyly terrific Mobius Band blows listeners another kiss with a new free-to-download l'amour-centric EP titled Empire of Love. You can pop over here to get your copy.
Empire of Love Track Listing:
1. Say You Will (Kanye West)
2. Love Hurts (The Everly Brothers)
3. Lullaby (Dixie Chicks)
4. Satellite (TV On The Radio)
5. At My Window (Townes Van Zandt)
6. You Don't Know How It Feels (Tom Petty)
Mobius Band recorded Empire of Love in a friend's empty house in North Bennington, VT just a couple weeks ago (yes - literally empty save for three rugs and a piano that couldn¹t be moved). They brought in all of the recording equipment and instruments along with sleeping bags, food, pans, etc. (just like camping!), set everything up in one room, decided what covers to record on the spot, and made this EP in four days.
Last year's Love Will Reign Supreme included ambitious covers of Daft Punk, Neil Young, Daniel Johnston, The National, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone and Bob Dylan, and is still available for download here.
Mobius Band will also be performing Monday 2/16 at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn with The Duke Spirit.
JamBase thanks them for this lovely new Valentine and muses dreamily about the band's next full-length album of originals.
