Steve Shiffman & the Land of No

Steve Shiffman & the Land of No premieres single from upcoming LP "Double Life"

"Things Are Clear This Morning" holds true to its title: it definitely is a morning song. Steve Shiffman & the Land of No's delicate, sleep-in-the-eye vocal gently guides you through the track, accompanied by a heartily strummed acoustic guitar.  There's even a synth-like electric guitar at the end that gives off just enough of an atmospheric texture to suspend the song in mid-air. Steve Shiffman successfully transports you to a warm breeze on a clear morning. The band's new record Double Life is out February 2nd on Later Records, with a release party at Club Berlin on February 10th. - Geena Kloeppel

Steve Shiffman & the Land of No releases new album + plays The Gutter on 09.12

Steve Shiffman’s voice has a natural appeal that really ties the band’s sound together. It is confident without being arrogant, and it sounds introspective without swimming in the murky waters of self-pity. The man - together with the musicians in Steve Shiffman & the Land of No - has released a new video for their song “Clown’s Lament” (see it here), a mellow, hopeful tune from their new album "Mon Dieu," which features a surprising number of songs, and a style somewhat reminiscent of the creative garage-psych of The Flaming Lips from the "Telephatic Surgery" years. Though it does not resemble the aesthetic of the Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979”, the single (streaming below) has the same subtle, addictive coolness to it. See the band live at The Gutter in Greenpoint on September 12. - Jack McGovern
