Julia Massey and the Five-FInger Discount play a brand of rock that is bits trippy, bits cosmic, bits sweet, airy and bouncy but by no means soft. The word that comes to my mind again and again while listening to their music is float, or weightlessness. The music lifts and carries one to a good place. If you haven’t seen them, you should.
Upcoming shows are listed on their website, and though there aren’t any coming up in Seattle, you’re still in luck as they have a new single available for download. The track is “The Story of the Earth, So Far” and was released yesterday with a celebratory show at the High Dive and is available for download. Cost is only $1.00.
They also played the song when they did an in-studio performance at KEXP so perhaps this video can tide Seattlites over until they play again in the area.
