It seems I've been posting a lot of albums with incomplete information, but I'm going to have to do it again. This week, The Duke Spirit released a new song and announced a new album, KIN.
I never thought I would get into a band that I was first exposed to in an American Eagle fitting room, but that's exactly where I first heard The Duke Spirit's unique brand of garage rock. I immediately fell in love with Liela Moss' raspy voice and the band's throwback style, which reminded me in part of Blondie.
It's been a little while since we've heard from them, kind of. Their last album as The Duke Spirit was 2011's Bruiser. However, band members Liela Moss and Toby Butler released an album as Roman Remains just last year. There's just a certain magic that created when they entire band is together though, and I'm excited to hear this new album, which is set for release sometime next year.
