WHY YOU SHOULD GO TO SXSW AND SHOULD SEE DEMITASSE

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

YEAR END UPDATE

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

 

 

WHY YOU SHOULD GO TO MOTHER FALCON/DEMITASSE ON SATURDAY NOV 22

Demitasse have been rigorously training their vocal cords using a combination of deep tissue massage,  hypnosis and coffee enemas.  Joe and Erik’s harmonies are now so immaculately tight that they sing and speak with one indistinguishable voice.   They have sharpened their guitar strings, and through a serious of disturbing finger exercises, their guitar playing has become transcendent – bringing one weeping audience member to their knees in Austin last month.  This is to be heard, not seen.

Demitasse joins the impossibly giant (17 member) and wonderfully symphonic Mother Falcon Saturday Nov 22 for a night of great music.

 

NEW SONGS

Demitasse has recorded two new songs in the most casual of fashions.  Much like activities that resulted in Blue Medicine, the process is quick and unforced.  Maybe, just maybe, these soft, feeble songs will be the seed for a new record.
