The dazey's new ep is entitled good fortune, a collective of some of nevada county's best bad ass babes: kelly patton (visual artist & libra), gracie schatz (butcher, cook, farmer & aquarius) & koorisa jericho (also in the furrow//releasing album soon, artist, native & taurus). the ep plays out like an easy companion to a summer's day. it's a mixture of surf rock, 50s soul, dream pop with easy bass lines that soothe your worried heart. the dazey's write the album is inspired "by tarot cards, indie rock, the intense natural beauty of Nevada City and the Yuba River, the full spectrum of womanhood in a post-patriarchal society, good wine, good cheese and good times".
Track 3 "justice" makes me feel like i'm drinking pinot in an emotionally soaked bubble bath. it's easy, it's catchy, you want to sing along but their harmonies are too good to mess with, so you bop along instead. track 4, "mother of pentacles" has comparisons to angel olsen's soulful heart broken power-house of a voice. i hear an empowered soulstress who cares deeply but knows that all might be lost, it's a happy sad song.
Tonight these DAZEYS will be in studio at 10:30PM featured on Jes Taber's program Room Temperature Butter. they will fill our hearts & ears with why they love food, where they acquired their name, we will hear 2 - 3 tracks of their picking & maybe you'll get to know three of the hottest babes around. what more is there?
