I’ve been a rabid fan of Yellow Fever from the first moment I heard them in.. early 2010? late 2009? Gosh, it’s been a while. I’m happy to hear they group is making more music, even if under a new moniker Deep Time… I dig it. Really looking forward to this release! Pre-ordered in opaque green vinyl!
I stumbled into seeing Austin’s Jennifer Moore and Adam Jones when they were still Yellow Fever at SXSW 2010 and remember being mesmerized by their inventive arrangements and catchy, plastic-wrapped hooks. They’ve gone on to change their name, and Gorilla vs. Bear just premiered this new track today - look out for their new self-titled full length on Hardly Art in July. Based on this single, we’re in for some great things.
To help you get you through the final doldrums of winter, I offer you my latest mixtape: Waiting For The Thaw. Download and enjoy!
