New Release: AIR MARSHAL LANDING – Vitamins EP

June 20, 2012

Bandcamp / Facebook / Twitter

Today AIR MARSHAL LANDING released their “top secret SECRET project”, their second EP, Vitamins. Recorded in B.C. with Nygel Asselin (HALF MOON RUN), Vitamins is a great listen; it’s also a slight departure from their previous releases, focusing more on delicate harmonies and warm acoustic guitar. Those harmonies in particular are a definite strong point of the album, and they really have room to breathe with the softer material.

The album is up as a “Name Your Price” download on their Bandcamp – and for those with tight budgets, yes, “free” is a price, so you really have no excuse. I heartily recommend giving it a download, with standout tracks being Meteor and title track Vitamins. The moody, ethereal backup vocals on the former are really tasty, and a personal favourite part of the whole album.

Vitamins is just a taste of AIR MARSHAL LANDING to come, as they are also prepping a full-length release for the fall. The band isn’t only recorded material however, as they also put on a killer live show. With that said, is it any coincidence that they’ll be playing the next iM showcase on July 6th? No, no it is not.
