DOWNLOAD: Princeton - To The Alps (MP3)


Princeton are visiting NYC from LA this week playing three times: an early show Thursday (2/24) at Mercury Lounge, then Friday (2/25) at Cameo and Saturday (2/26) at Union Hall.

Princeton have a new single out on Hit City USA called "To the Alps" that you can download above or watch a brand new video of below. More keyboard-oriented than anything on their 2009 album, Cocoon of Love, "To the Alps" is lush, groovy and austere in a Blue Nile kind of way. Whether this is a change in musical direction or just a one-off experiment, it suits them and let's hope they explore it further.

The Cameo and Union Hall shows are both with Bell and Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone. Takka Takka also play the Cameo Show. At Mercury Lounge, The Front Bottoms open.
