[MP3] Pearl and the Beard: "Oh, Death!"

Some creative folk at play here indeed. Pearl and the Beard, originally a trio, has recently become an ensemble of members, complete with a string section, drums, and a backing choir. The choir is what immediately drew my attention to these fine Brooklyn folks, as they back up the primary vocalists, Jocelyn Arlington (glockenspiel), Emily Hope Price (cello) and Jeremy Styles (guitar), with an overwhelming presence. The sound is inimitable, as the arrangements twist and turn, which is quite apparent on “Oh, Death!”, the single off their debut LP, God Bless Your Weary Soul, Amanda Richardson.

So if you’re looking to branch out some, pick up God Bless Your Weary Soul, Amanda Richardson on one of our new favorite labels, Family Records (home to Wakey!Wakey!).

  • I strongly reccomend this album from our label mates PatB. It’s one of our most spun albums in the Wakey tour van.
    Thanks for the shout!
