The New York City alt-rock band Apollo Heights put out a five-song digital EP this week called “Everlasting Gobstopper.”
It contains four previously unreleased tracks, plus the song “Everlasting Gobstopper” off the band’s 2007 debut album, “White Music for Black People.”
I come new to Apollo Heights. I am familiar with the band’s rhythm guitarist, Honeychild Coleman... but as a vocalist. (I streamed her singing here and here.)
The voice of Apollo Heights is Daniel Chavis. And the live performance clip below really shows off his chops. That song – “Aurora Borealis” – is on the new EP. Click here to hear the studio version on my Vox blog.
(I’ve also taken an instant liking to the Apollo Heights cover of “Dress You Up” from a 2007 Madonna tribute album. To hear it, click here.)
The new EP is downloadable from iTunes, Amazon and eMusic.
