DOWNLOAD: Black Wine - "Burlap" (MP3)
Black Wine, a band featuring Jeff from The Ergs! and two members of Hunchback, are set to release Hollow Earth, their third album on Don Giovanni, which is due out on July 3. That album will include the songs "Flatland" and "Burlap," the latter of which we've got the video for below, and an MP3 download above. All three members write and sing, so you'll notice different lead singers on those two tracks, and they're both pretty solid. Think Big Star-via-Replacements power pop for "Burlap," whereas "Flatland" is a bit more haunting.
Black Wine are set to tour this summer in support of the album with New Brunswick's Brick Mower, who just signed to Don Giovanni. That tour hits the NYC area on June 20 at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, and after it ends Black Wine will play another NYC show (this time without Brick Mower) at Shea Stadium on September 5 with The Midgetmen.
