Terrific track taken from new 10” EP. Brooklyn continues to rool, OK!
By Blurt Staff
Brooklyn’s slop folk duo—their description, so who are we to dissent?—Paul Meadow just released their Cheap and Easy EP, a five-songer “of jingles for any revolution inspired by Sunset Park, delivery services, long winters, and perpetual war.” Amen! Now they’ve got a video for the single “Heart of a Dog” that is pretty special, a virtual aural swoon that’s dreamysexycool all at once. As you, the discriminating BLURT readership, is about to find out via our latest premiere:
Some backstory: Formed out of inspiration and ideas of revolution, songmaster Paul Meadow is the creation of Sunset Park, Brooklyn’s Stirling Krusing and Chris Lee. The results are reflections engulfed in the symbolism of meaninglessness (“Cheap and Easy”) to “The Greatest Story Ever Told” (“Killer of Dreams”). ”I met Chris Lee and Stirling Krusing in a drinking establishment after they lost their jobs writing jingles at a notable advertising firm,” Meadow explains. “After a couple hours of drinking and discussing these matters I decided to work with ‘the boys’ to write songs exclusively for me.”
As Lee also comments, “Life on the street when your hands are your feet…lying doubled over drunk from the meat. Inspired by these words from Paul Meadow the video was shot on the Pacific coast in Guatemala.”
Incidentally, that EP is pressed up as a limited edition 10” vinyl gem that we suspect all our fellow record nerds are gonna snap up pretty quickly, so don’t sit on the fence, folks.
