New York, NY – New York City’s Lucinda Black Bear will celebrate the release of their anticipated sophomore CD, Knives, with a CD release show at 92YTribeca on Friday, November 5th at 9:00 PM. Tickets are available here at $10 in advance and $12 day of show.
The follow-up to 2007’s critically-acclaimed capo my heart and other bear songs, Knives finds the band fleshing out the indie folk of its debut, adding more lush, sweeping string arrangements and broader musical scope.
While capo was praised for its “carefully written folk rock with stunning sonic arrangements” (NPR Music) and “dark, country-inflected pop melodies” (Time Out New York), Knives ups the ante with a soulful fusion of cellos, feedback, loops, pianos, drums and oddly tuned guitars. Once likened to the bare-bones acoustic Americana style of Elliott Smith, the band’s plaintive and often melancholic songs get some meat added to their bones on Knives.
The title track off the forthcoming CD is now available at http://www.lucindablackbear.com/assets/music/lucinda-black-bear-knives.mp3. More information on Lucinda Black Bear can be found at http://www.lucindablackbear.com/ or http://www.myspace.com/lucindablackbear.
