Demitasse, Buttercup side project of Joe Reyes and Erik Sanden, is branching out big-time with a new 11 song record to be released Sept 29 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in San Antonio, Texas. The record itself is a departure towards a fuller sound. Called “Powercouple,” the album is full of dark humor and a lighter tone. It veers at times into almost rock and roll territory. It will be released by Bedlamb Records.
Demitasse traditionally has a hyper-minimal setup: two acoustic guitars and two voices, but for this big party at the Tobin will feature a full band, including Odie! The show at the Tobin promises to be one of our most epic shows yet. Get your tickets starting June 18 at The Tobin Center

A new 11 song record called Powercouple is coming very soon! September 2018. Mark your calendars.
It’s a happier, kinder kind of record. In our humble opinion, it is a charming batch of songs, a few of which stretch out into new territory full of keyboards, drums and electric guitars. But most stay rooted in Demitasse traditionalism: acoustic guitars, piano and sobbing voices. To get a preview come see us live at the 502 Bar on April 14 with Soccer Mommy.
check out this snippet of demitasse performing a bit of “no surprises” on woai news.
Demitasse sings a song from Radiohead’s OK Computer with the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio Saturday June 27. It’s a beautiful song, “No Surprises”, and a beautiful collaboration with young, talented musicians.
Demitasse was featured this week in All Songs Considered and their 2015 SXSW Best Songs List. Thanks NPR!
Demitasse played 4 shows in 3 days, gracing the music-laden air with their soft melodic songs. It’s already over, but it was a blast!
Demitasse is playing three shows for SXSW. Somehow Demitasse has fallen further in love with music. They recently played Kinks songs for 17 hours straight – and were not fatigued. Come see the duo in top shape with laser-like harmonies and minimalist pop masterpieces. Check out the SHOWS section for explicit directions
Demitasse had a great year in 2014. We were picked by NPR as one of the top bands to see at SXSW. Our debut record, Blue Medicine , was critically acclaimed and found its way into the hands of many music lovers. The single, “Comfy Coffins”, got airplay all over the country. If you don’t have a copy of Blue Medicine, consider picking one up through this website or Cdbaby. It makes a great Christmas gift.
We launched a new video. We wrote new songs. Most recently, we’ve been recording a batch of new songs for a potential second record. It’s an exciting time to be a musician and be alive. In fact, we wrote a new song about it: “It’s Good to Be Alive Again.”
We thank you, our fans and friends, for love and support. XOXO Demitasse
