Mystery Claws / Sleeping Bags Split 7"

Phony Checks - Mystery Claws from Easter Everywhere on Vimeo.



It seems the trappings of Princeton popularity aren't quite enough for the Kivel family. After the success of 'Calypso Gold' the debut release on the great new London based singles label Jodie & Victor comes a split 7” featuring Matt Kivel's (Pinceton Bass and vocals) new band Mystery Claws and Long Beach based Sleeping Bags.


Following on from much acclaim for the other half of Princeton Jesse Kivel's project Kisses, Matt looks to not be outshadowed with his folky pop gem 'Phony Checks' featuring a bum-budget produced video paying reference to the opening of teen dreamer flick 'Almost Famous'.


The split's other half Sleeping Bags 'Canteloupe', gives nods to shoegazers My Bloody Valentine or Ride and in its furthest reaches Kraut rockers Neu. But there's still an inkling of that California summer landscaping and commerical intention that has served Princeton so well. You wouldn't even be surprised to find the Kivels hidden in the corner of the recording studio to lay claim to another new blog hit on this one.

For any burdgeoning family bands working away, heed the call. One band just ain't gonna cut it.

Note: Jones Brothers need not apply.
