Shout It Out


Princeton's "Shout It Out" from their debut full length album "Cocoon of Love" has been remixed by Samuel Bing of Fol Chen, synched in a Ford commercial, and is being released as this 7 inch single to coincide with their first European tour.

STAFF COMMENTS

Laura says: There's still a hint of the afro rhythms here on "Shout It Out" despite it being much more low-key and mellow than their previous release. It's a well crafted pop song embellished with strings and nice little guitar flourishes.

Princeton release their UK debut "Calypso Gold" on Jodie & Victor records. growing up on Princeton Street in Santa Monica, twin brothers Jesse and Matt Kivel and childhood friend Ben Usen started playing together as a group in the late 90s, but officially formed Princeton during a year long stay in London. The band now lives in the Eagle Rock district of LA where their album was recorded. Fittingly for such a broad range of lyrical touchstones, the band's musical influences stretch just as wide, taking in everything from "Something Else" era; Kinks to Serge Gainsbourg, New Order, Arthur Russell, Scott Walker, Yo La Tengo and Gilberto Gil. "Calypso Gold" features lush strings and infectious, syncopated percussion for an effect that's wistful and even a little danceable.

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: Breezy Baroque pop with a nice lilt . A poppier Grizzly Bear? It's cute.

Laura says: I love this. Afro-beat tinged pop with lush strings and slightly folk-ish leanings. Imagine a very subtle amalgamation of Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective and Fleet Foxes!
