Extra Life @ Glasslands (more by Lori Baily)
Extra Life's new album Made Flesh is due out March 30. Check out "(Pay Up) The Ladder" from that disc, along with a pre-album version of "Black Hoodie" ("taken from a limited edition split 12" with Nat Baldwin, which has been re-recorded/re-imagined for Made Flesh") for free download above. Cover art below.
Extra Life (think Dirty Projectors & Final Fantasy) is fronted by guitarist/composer Charlie Looker, a core member of Zs" who has worked with Dirty Projectors, Glenn Branca, William Parker and the S.E.M. Ensemble".
The band is heading out on tour in February and March, but in the meantime there's a chance to catch them in Brooklyn, at Union Pool tonight (1/14) with Lichens and (Dirty Projectors member) Nat Baldwin, and then again with Sam Mickens & Mike Pride Duo and Kush at Zebulon on January 31st.
