Celebration - Sweet Gloom Baltimore Style

Dark, apocalyptic and cryptic, CELEBRATION paints music that might make Bauhaus, PJ Harvey and TV On The Radio fans, well, celebrate! In fact, David Sitek, of TV on The Radio produced one their earlier albums and assisted them in hooking up with the infamous 4AD records.

The husband and wife team of vocalist/percussionist Katrina Ford and multi-instrumentalist Sean Antanaitis front the band that....get this....is from right here in Baltimore! They'll be back in the area to play a show at DC's Rock and Roll Hotel Oct. 24th.

Their new album THE MODERN TRIBE add in a little gospel, jazz and more melody to their wild instrumentation. TVOTR and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs lend guest support. Check out the carnival organ swirl on this tune, EVERGREEN.
