many distant cities - how it was

bouncy world-inspired folk from many distant cities out of highland park in los angeles. this group of three musicians switches it up among a palette of sounds to arrange their tunes in an unorthodox manner, heavily featuring trumpet, accordion and ukulele to back up tight girl-groupish harmonies that contain surreal lyrics. there's whistling, glockenspiels, and much like the sorely underrated dexy's midnight runners, there isn't a 6 string guitar in sight.

i like this EP for many reasons, but one is that these ladies sing about drinking a lot. download this thing for five bones here.
