East Village Stroll
Yesterday I discovered a New York band that is so blisteringly unique and solid I was blown away and couldn't stop talking about them last night. I Led 3 Lives is comprised of three fiercely talented and greedily crafty musicians who have already comfortably established themselves in the trenches of the New York music scene. Ilhan Ersahin on keys and saxophone, Jochen Rueckert on drums and Juini Booth on bass together combine their individual creative backgrounds and leave their audience stunned with sounds ranging from psychedelic breakdowns to house beats and chirps and clicks that would make even the stingiest of Battles fans proud to be at one of their live sets. For more information on the band and a download of their song, House of Ahmet head over to the KEXP blog, for they are the being featured as the song of the day! I also highly recommend taking time to listen to all of the songs they have offered up on their myspace page, East Village Stroll is my own personal favorite. Their album, Peace Now was released via Nublu Records so go check it out now!
