Our pals in Jeffertitti’s Nile have emerged from their lengthy period of hibernation to bring to us the new single, “Upside,” from their forthcoming album The Electric Hour. You may remember Jeffertitti’s Nile from our very first DGB event last summer, or from their highly impressive debut release Hypnotic River of Sound. But if not, now is your time to discover this great band.
The new single from these West Coast psychsters, recorded by Jonny Bell from Crystal Antlers, heads in a more cinematic direction and is set to be released later this month on New York’s Better Breakfast label. Jeffertitti’s Nile have also cut four additional songs with ex-Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman, and will hit the road with his group Father John Misty for a run of shows this fall (see below for the tour poster). Interesting factoid: Jeffertitti also plays bass and sings in Father John Misty.
Jeffertitti’s Nile’s upcoming 10” EP entitled The Electric Hour, was recorded in Ojai, California at Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zero’s studio and is due for a release in early 2013. Check out “Upside” below.
