Prince Rama - "Rest In Peace"

Prince Rama are part of a massive Floristree lineup tomorrow with Liturgy, Witch Hat, PC Worship, and Adventure. Show starts at 9 PM, and it will cost you "ye$" dollars.

Brooklyn's Prince Rama are set to release their second full length on Animal Collective's Paw Tracks. Though they've slimmed down from a trio to a duo, little has changed.

With Michael Collins on hiatus, sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson have gone to create a record called Trust Now with Scott Colburn. "Rest In Peace" is a cut from the new LP, and starts off with a glorified Kung Fu burst that's straight out of your favorite 16-bit video game. The mood quickly changes and summons the spirits with a heady blend of tribal percussion, soaring vocals, and psychedelic entrancement.

The synths cut a lot sharper than in past efforts, with a much more pounding presence and fiercer low-end. All of the cosmic swirls and mysterious lyrics are still fully in tact, as "Rest In Peace" looks to solidify a sound that Prince Rama has been touring with for several years now. In order to promote the new affair Prince Rama is issuing out karaoke videos of tracks from the forthcoming LP by friends, including Woods' G. Lucas Crane's questionable and creepy rendition of "Incarnation".

Tuesday's Floristree show is a must, and you can RSVP here. Flyer by Chris Day.
