Bard and Mustache Release New EP, Download New Song "Your Face" + Tour Dates
By Quinn S.
Sarasota, FL alternative folk rock duo Bard and Mustache (Greg Bortnichak and Erin Murphy, respectively) self-released their sophomore EP, Found, today. They also just kicked off their Kickstarter-funded "Autumnal Equinox Tour" yesterday. Hear and download a cut from Found and scope their tour dates below.
Bard and Mustache - "Your Face"
Mr. Bard and Ms. Mustache have matured quite nicely since last year's Falcor's Burning Belly EP. "Your Face" starts with jazz-like, understated confidence, anchored by Bortnichak's cello-as-bass groove. Murphy's voice yearns with a sweet inflection; she sounds all the more tender and charming supported by the creative, dynamic cello arrangements. It all starts on one plain and floats on to higher ground.
1) Your Face
4) Cowboy Chords
