COUNT FLEET Pre-Record-Release + In-Store TONIGHT

Hailing from Echo park, jangly folk duo Count Fleet are dropping their new 7" Stay Here / Favorite Fiction (Manzan Records) this Tuesday August 2nd (BUT YOU CAN SNAG SOME UP TONIGHT!!). Described as “earnest and winsome” by Buzzbands LA, title track “Stay Here” is an upbeat hearty folk offering, while “Favorite Fiction” is a blues flecked 70’s styled pop opus.

Led by video director Elliot Glass and Caitlin Dwyer, this twosome are joined by a rotating group of Los Angeles musicians and friends. Count Fleet’s brand of folk infused psychedelic rock, emerges with a modern indie pop aesthetic, marrying a wide range of influences from 60s and 70’s folk and Motown R&B.

Count Fleet released their Richard Raymond (Local Natives, Broken West) produced, debut EP in early 2011 to much local acclaim from Radio Free Silverlake, KCRW and LA Weekly who proclaimed, “Elliot Glass might be best known as a video director for the indierati … but he has teamed up with Caitlin Dwyer for a focused set of pop tunes that, dare we say it, manages to outdo his way buzzier clients.”

Count Fleet are set to embark on a mini West Coast jaunt in support of the 7″ this week, with stops in San Francisco, Portland and Seattle before they prep for their full-length record. (Indigenous)

See them here tonight at 7pm and get yr mitts on these great 7"s!!
