Sons of an Illustrious Father release EP "Son," tour with Saul Williams + play Brooklyn Bowl on 05.07

For their last few singles, Sons of an Illustrious Father have released narrative album covers showing the thinning space between two nude women - it began with a strained handshake, then became a lunging touch. In the cover of their spring 2015 EP “Sons” (which simply gathers in a physical release those two digital singles), the two women share a passionate kiss. These images are excerpts from a film roll designed by band member Lilah Larson. Curiously, one last erotic segment is left, perhaps saved for a future release. The EP begins with talk of death and afterlife and travels back to the world of the living with doubts and anxiety over the state of the planet. Although decidedly alt rock, their style marries snippets of musical and verbal ideas saved from long improv sessions, including funk and Americana influences. The New York based trio is busy finishing up an LP and setting sail on the "Marty Loser Kingdom Tour" this spring with Saul Williams. They will stop home to play a show at The Brooklyn Bowl on May 7th. - Leora Mandel
