The Babies release "Moonlight Mile" 7" + play Public Assembly on 7/25

The Babies release "Moonlight Mile" 7" + play Public Assembly on 7/25

The evolution of Vivian Girls' founding member Cassie Ramone's other project known as The Babies takes another step forward with the release of the 7" "Moonlight Mile," presented as an appetizer for the band's upcoming new album. Started as a very DIY psych-pop band, the group in the last year has morphed its sound towards a new, more defined direction, which finds inspiration in the American Roots Rock of the 80s filtered through Frank Black's odd chord progressions and relentlessly tense pop anthems.

Lead vocals handled this time by writing partner (and Woods' bassist) Kevin Morby, a cautionary tale is laid out about the perils traveling down an uncertain road. Cassie contributes significantly with the hook-laden background vocals, which at times almost sounds like a horn section. A piercing lead guitar riff emerges, echoing the train metaphor that culminates the song's lyrical statement. The track can be streamed now and will be released as the first single by the Woodsist label on August 14. The full album titled "Our House On The Hill" will be released in the fall. The 7" release will feature an exclusive B-side and is limited to 1,000 copies. The band will be playing multiple shows in Brooklyn, beginning with Public Assembly on 7/25, Union Pool on 7/28, Secret Project Robot on 7/31, McCarren Park on 8/15 and Union Pool again that same night. - Dave Cromwell
