about

Written following a bout of heavy touring, eventual hiatus of previous incarnation EZTV and amidst the degradation of multiple relationships, the songs that make up 'Carousel' were culled from an obsessive trove of over 50 home recorded demos. Sounds oscillate from jangly meditations ("Turn the Time), drum machine fueled heart pangs ("Picture Taker), and the ethereal ruminations of a shut in ("Loud Sounds)". After tracking live at Brooklyn's Figure 8 Studios, guitarist Ezra Tenenbaum and drummer Michael Stasiak fleshed out knotty hook-filled arrangements at home with the help of a rotating crew of friends.

about

Ezrat New York, New York

Ezrat is a simple twist of the lemon for followers of Ezra Tenenbaum's previous band, EZTV. Listeners can expect the same deliciously deployed power-pop hooks that recall British invaders or left of the dial new wave. New players are in the mix, plus some old faces, playing pop-inflected rock music that operates as both a mirror to our past and a strum-happy tunnel to the future. ... more
