Gardens & Villa - Gardens & Villa - free download, upcoming tour info
Recently got a listen to Gardens & Villa's self-titled 2011 release, and I'm impressed. It's got elements of prog, new wave and funk, but lo-fi, with an acoustic base and falsetto vocals... it's pretty soulful and definitely a grower.
My interest was drawn by upcoming visit to Nashville (March 23 at High Watt - 18+ show), but they're touring all over, including SXSW. Tour info available at Secretly Canadian.
Here's the video for "Spacetime":
And here's a free download of "Black Hills".
Looks like a group of California kids making really cool music, working their way across the bottom half of the country this spring. Check 'em out if you can.
