[NHM] New Haven Music


EULA (Record Release), M.T. BEARINGTON @ Cafe 9, April 29th

This Friday, April 29th Eula will be celebrating the release of their new record Maurice Narcisse with a show at New Haven’s “musician’s living room,” Cafe Nine.

Eula have been a mainstay in the New Haven music scene for several years now and, by sheer effort, have earned themselves the reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the state. Despite the fact that two-thirds of the band now reside in Brooklyn (guitarist/singer Alyse Lamb and drummer Nate Rose (aka DJ Booty Beats) moved there late last year), the trio (along with bassist Jeff Maleri) have long sworn their allegiance to the Elm City and continue to do so with regular area shows. Although releasing several demos and EPs throughout their 6+ years as a band (including 2009’s memorable Language of Threat EP), Maurice Narcisse is, surprisingly, Eula’s first full-length album. Clocking in a 10 tracks, Maurice Narcisse was first previewed by a 3 song demo (including the title track as well as songs ‘Dirty Hands’ and ‘Texas Stampede’) in October of last year. As the demos (and now record) indicate, Eula continues to grow musically, carving out a unique blend of jagged arrangements, spiky rhythms and hyperactive melodies that, although firmly rooted in post-punk defies easy classification. There is an almost child-like playfulness at work within their songs that distinguishes them from many of their contemporaries. What makes this playful abandon work though is the way in which it is tempered by the band’s super-tight rhythm section and by the brevity of the compositions (seldom do their songs last beyond three minutes). On top of their work ethic and drum-tight sound, Eula is also known for their kick-ass live show. Having just returned from a Midwest tour in support of the new record, the band should be in good form for Friday night.

Opening for Eula will be fellow Elm City stalwarts M.T. Bearington whose creative take on indie-pop and rock has gained them a significant reputation in their own right. Matt Thomas & co. recently released their acclaimed sophomore album Love Buttons on Safety Meeting Records (including limited edition vinyl!) so make sure to pick up a copy of that as well.
