“127 North” by Caspian, is Northern Transmissions’ ‘Song of the Day’. The track is now available via Triple Crown Records. Caspian are presently on the road with The Appleseed Cast, they play their next show on October 27th in Houston, TX.
Here is some context on the song from Phil Jamieson of Caspian:
“127 North” is the sound of 6 guys playing in a room together on a Friday afternoon, and is in some ways the least ambitious thing we’ve ever committed to tape. Free from the grip of over arrangement, overdubs, click tracks, excessive chin stroking and the like, “127 North” is what a Caspian song sometimes sounds like in its infancy. It’s a vulnerable moment for us to introduce people to a song that exists in this kind of limbo, somewhere between improvisation and a fully composed piece of music. It’s an honest moment and all a part of the process, of course. Maybe it’s time to invite people behind the curtain a little… there’s some old couches, a few beers and maybe a few high fives back here waiting for you. Some days are less serious than others, and that’s quite alright with us.
Caspian are now on tour with The Appleseed Cast.
