In the first single off their new release, THE MYTH AND THE SUM, Brooklyn’s Cruel Black Dove announces, “Isolation feels right,” and so does just about everything else on this five-track EP. More atmospheric and moodier than their 2008 debut, FULL POWERS, the new album features sexy dance grooves oozing through haunting vocals kept slightly back in the mix on such songs as “Forgotten Place” and “Isolation.” Layered vocals lift the beautiful “Raking Water,” leading to the dark, languid closer, “Tied to the Pavement.” Lead singer Anastasia Dimou, guitarist Alan Veucasovic, bassist Shirley Ho, and drummer Jonathan Nanberg begin a Tuesday residency tonight at Fontana’s, with such guests as Saadi on April 6, the Danvilles on April 20, and Open Ocean on April 27. At Santos Party House celebrating the album’s release in January, CBD covered the Stooges’ “Gimme Danger”; who knows what they have up their sleeves during this four-show residency on the Lower East Side.
