the duke spirit

I was recently tipped off to The Duke Spirit.

Fronted by Liela Moss – a woman who evokes expectations of Blondie – the music actually ends up sounding like a modernized version of Jefferson Airplane (note that I said AIRPLANE, not STARSHIP) – kind of a psychedelic Sonic Youth. More specifically, Liela Moss’ voice might remind you of Grace Slick.

The Duke Spirit have two albums – The Cut Across the Land, which came out in 2005, a year after being recorded – and Neptune, which arrived in February of this year.

Check out “Lassoo”…

…and “The Step and the Walk.”

This band has been around for a few years and have been relying greatly on playing out and touring around. This is exactly the kind of band we hope to attract with NewTunes. I think there are many song searches that would produce The Duke Spirit as a search result.

    Wow, I kinda thought I was a little crazy to think of Grace Slick but yeah, you got it too. They did a great show in Chicago which I reviewed on my blog, amazing group, thanks for your review xoxox
