Darlingside Extralife Limited Vinyl LP

Third album from the Boston band. Includes "Eschaton" ["brings an extra dimension of electronica to their sound, existing somewhere in a triangle of The Buggles, Owl City and Nintendo...the upshot is celestial, stratospheric," Louder Than Bombs] "Hold Your Head Up High" ["sweeping," American Songwriter].
The band’s new album 'Extralife' intensifies the journey begun on its critically acclaimed 2015 album birds say. On that project, Darlingside’s quartet of bassist Dave Senft, guitarist/banjoist Don Mitchell, violinist/mandolinist Auyon Mukharji, and cellist/guitarist Harris Paseltiner fused assertions (“go back”), assumptions (“god of loss”), predictions (“the ancestor”), projections (“do you ever live?”) And reflections (“white horses”). “We put our four heads together and created this collective consciousness about bits and pieces from our past and how we saw the world based upon reminiscences,” explains Paseltiner about that sojourn. It having been the Massachusetts group’s second full length outing, Birds Say mastered a musical and lyrical path that led to the more challenging territory explored on Extralife. Mukharji describes the “Extralife” concept as “...a life beyond where we are now, whether that's a brand new thing, a rebirth, or just a new version of ourselves as we move forward.” So by abandoning birds say’s nostalgia and its tales of “what once was,” Darlingside created its polar opposite with Extralife the new album exploring “what is now” and “what might be” simultaneously in the brave new world. – Alleyesmedia
