Venice Reprise Part One
The three-man band from Venice Beach celebrates their fourth year with the release of The Venice Reprise, Part One. This album highlights the evolution of the eclectic, harmony-driven songwriting that has made it's mark along the California coast. Recorded at the Musicians' Institute in Los Angeles, The Reprise is like a deep breath after bizarre challenges cropped up during the band's last three years of touring. Revisiting cornerstones from their first LP like 'The Unknown Show' and 'Dogs and Swine', the Reprise introduces new tracks from their upcoming LP, and a haunting rendition of Leonard Cohen's ageless Hallelujah. John Caelan, Mikel Farber, and Jourdan D'Andrea present acoustic guitars, piano, sax, and organic rhythms as the backbone of lyrically-intense socio-political songwriting brought home in rich, haunting three-part harmonies. With only two hours available for each song in the recording studio, The Venice Reprise is a great capture of the live sound of Quebb.
