I originally got excited about The Preservation after only hearing a handful of songs. But now, The Preservation are celebrating the release of their debut full-length this Friday. It’s going to be at The Swan Dive with Leatherbag and Wiretree. We here at Ovrld are highly anticipating this release and the show. It’s been rumored that the horn section from Black Joe Lewis’ Honeybears will be joining The Preservation on stage to play some of the tracks off the new record.
Titled Two Sisters, The Preservation’s upcoming release is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign. The album was recorded at Public Hi-Fi, the local studio built by Spoon drummer, Jim Eno, and was co-produced and engineered by Brad Bell, who also worked on a little album called The Suburbs. Currently, a good number of the new tracks are available at The Preservation’s Bandcamp page. And from what I’ve heard of the album, The Preservation have really delivered on their debut LP. They still toe the line between folk and indie rock but have really filled out their sound with additional horns and harmonized vocals. Give “First Story” a listen to hear a sample of Two Sisters.
So take a trip down to Red River this Friday and visit The Swan Dive, an excellently classy venue, to see The Preservation, Leatherbag and Wiretree. $5 gets you in but $10 gains you entrance and The Preservation’s shiny new CD.
