MP3: Surtsey, "I Am In Your Name" and "How Time Sorts Things"

Posted By on Wed, Oct 28, 2009 at 10:30 AM

Apologies for spacing on this last Friday. Here are two MP3s from the band Surtsey. Although based in Cape Girardeau, the trio has started earning more gigs in St. Louis as of late. (In fact, the next one is Wednesday, November 4, at Cicero's with It's All About the Benjamins and Sink the Bismark.) Surtsey's tunes are wise beyond their years, full of toasty-warm acoustic guitars, faded piano, molasses tempos and Joseph Bassa's sonorous, sometimes-somber vocals. Unlike other groups of its age or style, however, Surtsey makes sure its songs are mature and well-structured -- and its aim is sincerity, not fame at all costs. Get the Broken Beds EP now.
