Today we’re very excited to announce the release of our latest single, “The Eloise Suite.” Thematically, the song is about the balance of want versus need. Musically, it’s one of our catchiest songs. Originally titled “Dit-Dat,” we changed the title months ago after Charlie Sheen had his infamous breakdown in the Eloise Suite of New York’s Plaza Hotel. Someday, we hope to participate in a more good-natured trashing of the famous pink hotel room. The first b-side is “Dress Shop,” which is a short and sweet pop tune that features a rollicking bass line. The second b-side is two cover songs in one- a mix of LCD Soundsystem’s “All I Want” and David Bowie’s classic “Heroes.” The artwork for the single was again provided by George Boorujy from a piece of his called Rookery. Mixing and mastering was done by the incomparable Andy Altmann. We worked really hard on all of the tracks and we hope they get your head nodding and fist pumping.
One of our favorite sites, My Old Kentucky Blog, premiered the song today. You can buy the mp3s via iTunes or Amazon, buy them in CD quality from our store, share them via Facebook or Twitter for a free download, or simply download for free them via our Soundcloud player to the right.

In other news, be on the lookout for a big CMJ related announcement in the next couple of weeks. Also, we recently did a fun interview with Sirens of Decay– check it out.
“…a Gowanus-based duo that sounds a little like what JAMC might sound like with Robert Smith fronting. And if you listen real close, you’ll hear an honest to goodness guitar solo. Chain me down, Martha!” – My Old Kentucky Blog
