New Spell: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jul 27 2011

There's a reason you haven't heard of New Spell — the local trio didn't even have a name until a few months ago — but no reason you shouldn't get in on the ground floor now that you have. March saw the release of its debut One More Day EP, which is just a shade too refined to do justice to the rollicking frenzy the group conjures (get it?) in person, as vocalist, pianist, and ringleader Leanne Kelly simpers and soars over the jazzy ministrations of an impeccably fidgety rhythm section. There's some Bat for Lashes, some Rilo Kiley, some Billy Joel reincarnated as a sultry dame, and maybe some Julianna Barwick voice-delay action if you're lucky. Catch them now, before they settle on a single avenue.
