ARTISTdirect is giving our precious ARTISTdirectioners another gift this holiday season. Today, we are premiering The Looking's Alone the Other Night EP.
It's the try-before-you-buy period. Listen to the whole thing now.
Fusing together a wide scope of inspiration including opera, punk rock, traditional folk, and psychedelic soul, The Looking, aka Todd Carter, creates music that sticks with you. Carter's credits range from singing the role of Siegmund in Wagner's Walkyrie at CAMI Hall and performing at Carnegie Hall to playing NYC rock club staples like The Bowery Electric and Arlene's Grocery.
Here is what the The Looking said about the EP: "Alone the Other Night is dear to me. These are the last recordings I made at my beloved studio at 104th Street and Broadway in New York City before I had to move out. The process of making these recordings was a joy and all of the musicians involved were fantastic. I love the contrast of the songs as they are all so different stylistically-- at least to my ear. Recording the title track 'Alone the Other Night' in one take was new for me. I had done live vocals before, but I had never done live vocals with the whole ensemble playing with no overdubs."
With that in mind, enjoy the EP! If you love it, pick it up at iTunes.
