Stream: Great Caesar - Scattered Air EP (2012)
Great Caesar is an anthemic indie rock band based in Brooklyn by way of Connecticut. They’ve spent much of the past year kicking around the New York circuit, playing high profile shows including a number at this year’s CMJ Festival. They blew me away when I saw them open for Titus Andronicus at Quinnipiac University in April, and I’ve been anticipating their release of new material ever since.
Thankfully, my anticipation has been validated. The band just dropped a new EP called Scattered Air, stocked with four tracks full of harmonic vocals, power pop chord progressions, and more sultry saxophone leads than you can shake a stick at. Highlights include the overused-but-impossible-not-to-love wordless chorus of “Tuned To Break” and the gritty, minor-key riffing of the lead single “Rearview.” If you make it through the first three tracks, look out for the eerie, jazz-inflected closer “Son,” on which frontman John-Michael Parker evokes a space-age Frank Sinatra. These four tracks are all impeccable, and hint at bright things for this budding and ambitious group in the future.
Stream Scattered Air above and purchase it via Bandcamp for $5.
Great review of the new EP! Thanks Chris!
