Two If By Sea

I don't even need to be witty with the title on this one.

Two If By Sea is a long distance project between Teresa Daniele (formerly of The Haircuts), Lisle Mitnik (Fireflies, Very Truly Yours) and Kevin Clark (Homeville Circle, Wooden Owls). Lush would be a pretty good way to describe the 5 track Staysail. It's also a pretty good...ehh...what's that acronym "RIYL?" The Field Mice covering The Softies wouldn't be a bad summarization either (or maybe the other way around?). If that doesn't entice you, maybe talk of jangling guitars, swirling soundscapes, and breathy vocals will. If you're still thinking "eh, not for me," then you're a lost cause anyways.

Scoop up a 7" from February Records and get ready spend way too much time watching some grooves spin.

While you're at it, give the video for the opening track "Apron of Flowers" a watch/listen.

There was a Baltimore band with this name around 2003. Related?

I don't believe so. From what I know, no one in this Two if By Sea has ever lived in Baltimore. More than likely, both groups just happened to pick the same name, but you never know!
