Late bday vinyl from my honey bee.
This album on repeat ALLLLLLLLLL DAY. So good.
“Troubled Waters” - Sucré
- I’m one of those old, old, back in the day Eisley fans (my copy of their first album came from a demo bin in Nashville, you couldn’t find it up in the Northeast… this was back in that dark period called Just Before iTunes) and it’s been breaking my heart to see the band push and pull in different directions over the years. The later Eisley albums are hit-and-misses for me, some good tracks, but rocky at best. The good news is the Dupree girls still have talent and famously have dated and married and divorced and re-married into different bands, splintering off into side projects and featured tracks that are all quite remarkable.
- Enter Sucré, Stacy King neé Dupree, her beau Darren King (of Mutemath) and Jeremy Larson (a studio musician and engineer) have produced a pretty impressive album in A Minor Bird. Despite the album’s twee name (and the band’s literally saccharine name), there’s something serious and lush and masterfully orchestrated about these arrangements. Fresh, but with that traditional Eisley-arrangement twist.
- Here’s my favorite track from A Minor Bird, it’s Tenori-on meets strings meets Dupree. Quite enjoyable for a sunny Saturday.
life never seemed so elegant, but so trite.
no love/no loss. there is only air.
i feel no pain. there is only here.
oh, but this shall be the end of endless sleep. i must stay awake…
Sucré Shine Brightly in ‘When We Were Young’ — Video Premiere
The entire video was shot live without the use of any special effects at Elsie Larson’s store using nothing but the room, lighting and mirrors. Several lamps that they found on location were strung from the ceiling and placed on the ground to achieve the desired effect.
