For many reasons, sourceVictoria has been name-checked here quite often, not the least of which is that the band hovers among my favorites (think the sort of admiration reserved for bands like the National).
The group has been recording new material, and, from what I’ve heard so far, it only cements my near-flawless reasoning. You can listen for yourself at MySpace. Pay particular attention to Miss Spiritual Tramp of 1948, a song based on the J.D. Salinger story A Perfect Day for Bananafish.
“There’s nothing more to say / this suffering’s all that I own.” Love it.
Unfortunately, Jeff Livingston will be playing his last show as piano/keys player for the band on May 25 at Yucca Tap Room; Jeff is moving soon to San Diego. (You can also catch Jeff on Friday at the Paper Heart as part of the Jon Rauhouse Orchestra.)
