EZTV – Dust in the Sky (Official Music Video)
Director / DoP / Editor = Ian Perlman

レフト・バンクやエミット・ローズ、ポウジーズをも彷彿とさせるブルックリンのジャングリィ・パワーポップ・トリオ。先月Captured Tracksからリリースされたデビュー・アルバム『Calling Out』はウッズのジャーヴィスがプロデュース。

“It wouldn’t be entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman’s latest US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it’s not far from the truth. Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track in the vein of Shoes, Emitt Rhodes and Cleaners From Venus, and, in a desire to round out the songs, he enlisted bassist Shane O’Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of Widowspeak). As it happened, the trio’s first chance to play together was an audition for the American touring version of Spiritualized (they didn’t get the job). But, the trio kept meeting and working, turning Ezra recording as a solo artist into Ezra, Shane and Michael playing as a band; thus, EZTV was formed.” –Captured Tracks

Brooklyn three-piece, EZTV’s full-length debut “Calling Out” (produced by Woods’ Jarvis Taveniere) is available via Captured Tracks.
