Princeton : 'Calypso Gold'
One of my favorite new tracks is this dreamy song, 'Calypso Gold' by Los Angeles-based band, Princeton. It has been available on their debut album on Kanine Records, and now the track will also be out on 7" (for all you 7" lovers) on January 25th.
"The band’s musical influences stretch just as wide, taking in everything from Something Else-era Kinks to Serge Gainsbourg, New Order, Arthur Russell, Scott Walker, Yo La Tengo and Gilberto Gil. While still rooted in the Baroque pop of their past work, Cocoon of Love sees the band explore new moods and styles, from the seductive, synth-driven Martina and Clive Krantz to the straight-up Stax-style soul of Show Some Love, When Your Man Gets Home."
