Track of the Day: Augustines – Book of James

November 10th, 2010 by Zac

Brooklyn has had its fair share of successful musicians throughout the years. If you looked through the decades from before Lou Reed became an icon to the incredible amount of Hip Hop that was born there with The Beastie Boys to Jay Z, this popular area of New York has always told a story that the world has listened to and enjoyed.

Billy McCarthy and Eric Sanderson who are Augustines are about to share their incredible story in 2011 and on first listen they could well be joining that infamous list of successful artists that use Brooklyn as a base to launch their careers worldwide. Why? Because they have a tale to tell and a superb sound to match that not only has soul, it is also played from the heart.

Their debut album Rise Ye Sunken Ships was produced by Dave Newfeld (Los Campesinos!, Broken Social Scene) and will be out sometime next year, but for now enjoy this video EPK to get the full picture and visit augustinesmusic.com to pick up a free download of the track Book of James. If your ears are in tune with bands such as the Gaslight Anthem, Arcade Fire and The National then you should not be disappointed.
