One of my new most anticipated records of the year.


The band is made up of the two lovely people pictured below. They make blazingly sexual music consisting of tribal, dirty drums (doubled in places I think), and spacey, ethereal guitar riffs floating below terrifyingly erotic vocals that sweep you up and surround your consciousness. I. Dig. This. Sound. The album, Less Than Lion, drops August 18, 2009

Divisible - Love Is The Cost

Divisible - Exit Music (For a Film) (Radiohead Cover) (duh)

Press release:"""""
Los Angeles-based band Divisible, consisting of singer Shola and drummer Albert Sadia, is pleased to present its debut album Less Than Lion, a collection of songs (including a reinterpretation of Radiohead’s “Exit Music [For A Film]),” that explores Shola’s journey from the halls of Harvard to a West African reconciliation with her father, who lives in Ghana via a propulsive mixture of rock, electronica, and world music sounds.

After meeting in downtown Los Angeles, Shola and Sadia set out to make songs that were moody, atmospheric, and accessible. Divisible recorded its first demo in the confines of Shola and Sadia’s rehearsal room. Divisible’s debut release, The Alchemy EP, quickly garnered local attention from Filter Magazine, ABC Television, and L.A.’s Indie 103.

Divisible upcoming full-length was produced by Tommy Walter (Eels) and mixed by Ryan Freeland (Aimee Mann, Loudon Wainwright III). Less Than Lion, is a blend of Peter Gabriel, PJ Harvey, and TV On The Radio-style sounds. It’s worldly, primal music that speaks to the band’s African ancestry.""""
