A stylistically adventurous selection of compositions from The Brand New Life’s live repertoire, this self titled EP incorporates the virtuosic talking drum of Senegal with the band’s interest in funk, jazz, and rock music. The recording reflects the band’s eclectic influences filtered through driving rhythms and dense orchestration.
Received a ‘Best of North Carolina’ award for 2013.
Seth plays upright bass and fretless electric bass on the recording.
