New Pree: "In The Parlor" mp3


While you're busy waiting for the next Modest Mouse and Regina Spektor albums to drop, you should probably check out DC's Pree. (What an adorable name, too. Awww, look at that little Pree!) Led by the talented and beautiful May Tabol (Le Loup), Pree is gearing up for the release of their debut EP, A Chopping Block, on March 24th via The Kora. We're offering the disc's first single "In The Parlor" above. Tabol's got a quirky voice akin to Spektor and even a little bit of Joanna Newsom, while the band around her gallups along in herky-jerky rhythms, adequately complementing each word. There's a whole lot to like about Pree. Plus, friend of the blog and Best Of 2008 contributor Tom Hnatow of These United States played on the album. That sounds like reason enough to pay attention.
