Tonight we have a musical treat at Acceity courtesy of my friend Alex Schaaf, a music major at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Those who know me have undoubtedly heard me comment on Schaaf's previous work with the band Escalator Dance Party. That group's spring 2008 album, God Save the Crane, is still available—you can download it from Amazon.com. Now, though, Schaaf has shifted his focus to a new band with a refreshingly different sound. They're calling themselves The Chairs, and they've already produced an EP entitled November. Here's the first track, for your enjoyment:
The rest of the EP, which includes a cover of Neutral Milk Hotel's "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea", is available for listening at thechairsband.com.
