In the furious midst of packing for London, I have been writing and singing music with Saharan Gazelle Boy for the past month. This, of course, has led to a furious procrastination in the packing for London, as we are now rehearsing for a show on Saturday, which coincides with the release of our EP, Strange Teen Heart.
Here's an excerpt from the Record Machine:
Strange Teen Heart is the second Record Machine release for Saharan Gazelle Boy, a collaboration between Capybara's Darin Seal and Sea Change (aka Sarah Handelman). The EP is a super-quad of songs that conjure the love, loneliness and naiveté of teendom while continuing to develop the sleepy, bedroom pop of Saharan's Airplane's Can't.
The melodramatic, synth-pop is the soundtrack for the shy, 1980s, pretty-but-doesn't-know-it high school girl in all of us.
The EP is a co-release between KC-based Record Machine and SF-based Paper Brigade. You can stream/buy the EP (FOR 2 DOLLARS!!!) at the Record Machine or Paper Brigade, stream it on Facebook, and later this month you can buy it through iTunes. Also, if you're in the KC area, come to the show at the Beaumont Club on Saturday!
