was feeling rather melancholic last night, so i naturally ended up stumbling over figuring out an epithets song in the wee hours of the morning. i can’t really play piano, so don’t judge too harshly. download the brilliant record that this clip is referencing here.
The globe-spanning friendship between SV and ourselves is once of the most surprising and excellent things our tenure as a band has produced. Thank you, Caleb, for doing us the honour of your interpretation.
Epithets “Disaster Tourism” (from “The Wellspring”, 2013)
There is a constancy. I do procrastinate about listening to new records by bands I tend to enjoy. I may feel the urge to get them under my hands, physically, more often digitally, but I tend to let dust fall on them until finally I break the cellophane. I really don’t know what I fear exactly, maybe not to meet the expected joy, or just the fugacity of evanescent feelings and impressions, fleeting emotions, the transiency of happiness. Or simply, listening to music is my last privacy, where I meet my integrity, so i save those as oxygen. Epithets will be touring with Sleep Decade and there is no better song to play with their “Mexico” than this “Disaster Tourism”, which ends “The Wellspring”. I love this one so much. Thank you.
Didier has been one of the most eloquently vocal supporters of our music- and he’s also introduced us to countless bands we might not have discovered otherwise, including our February tourmates, Sleep Decade. We remain so grateful for his support.
The first “single” from our new album, “The Wellspring”, has been featured on Lofly Records’ new label compilation. The song is called “The Repose”. This is the first time that any of our new material has been made available anywhere, and precedes the album’s release on October 16th. We’re exceptionally proud of it - please tell us what you think, and feel free to share it around too.
