Big Fresh prep ‘Fall Preview’ EP (listen to “Paralyzed” ft. Robert Schneider of Apples in Stereo)
Lexington, KY’s Big Fresh have been making tuneful, quirky pop for a decade now, led by John Ferguson (who is also a member of Apples in Stereo). The band have a new EP, Fall Preview, due out June 2 via Desperate Spirits. It’s one of two EPs they’ve got on tap for 2017. “Target audiences include all citizens of China, manic depressives, scholars of jazz chord voicings, and recovering Catholics,” says Ferguson. “It’s sanguine music for turbulent times.” We’ve got the premiere of the jazzy/groovy “Paralyzed,” which features lead vocals from Apples in Stereo’s Robert Schneider. Check that out below.
Big Fresh will be touring in June with ATTEMPT (led by Trevor Tremaine who sings on Fall Preview) and they’ll play NYC’s Mercury Lounge on June 5 with Matt Duncan also on the bill. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Speaking of, Apples in Stereo and Big Fresh play the 2017 Athens Popfest.
