New Music: Nightmare And The Cat

Last week the new EP from Nightmare and the Cat landed on our desks, and we gave it a spin. And another, and another. The music is oddly compelling - strangely earnest, yet epic in its rock and roll vibe, with a tinge of folk. In many ways it's theatrical, but it also manages to hold on to a bit of rock and roll grit.

In short, it's fresh and compelling in its sound, and that's enough to get us interested. Luckily, the band has a show at Mercury Lounge tomorrow night, so we'll get to see how the tunes hold up in a live setting. See you there!
