EZTV’s new album High in Place promises to be an interesting one with some fun guest appearances from Indie glitterati such as Jenny Lewis, Chris Cohen and Matt Kallman of Real Estate. You can hear the lead single ‘High Flying Faith’ below. The album was released on Sept 30th.
But the new album from EZTV titled High in Place and out on Captured Tracks on 30th September, is not only a resistance but a defiance to that sentiment. Opening track “High Flying Faith “is a refutation of urban weariness, it’s title perhaps acting as a makeshift motto for the optimism (and stubbornness) that is key to New York bands like EZTV. That track is out today and features guest vocals from Jenny Lewis.
Besides Lewis, the band were able to take advantage of other friends tour stopovers, trips to attend weddings, or even just commandeering someone’s vacation for a few days, EZTV invited some like-minds and fellow songwriters into the studio – including Chris Cohen, Martin Courtney and Matt Kallman of Real Estate, John Andrews of Quilt, Nic Hessler and Mega Bog — to guest on High in Place. Aptly recorded on a tape machine purchased from a Lower East Side Studio that was going out of business, in a space where the New York City skyline both loomed and inspired through its glass windows, High in Place is an album of ten golden pop songs worthy of any era.
