Out Today: DC USA by Ugly Purple Sweater

By Stephanie Williams | Albums, Uncategorized

New release Tuesday wouldn’t be complete without Ugly Purple Sweater’s new EP, DC USA. The bands brings back their signature folk aesthetic back to life with this four-track release, and if you were a fan of their last full-length Conventions (released in November 2011), then there’s a good chance that you’ll be sold on DC USA as well. My personal favorite track? The vivacious, Johnny Cash-like ringer “Central Detention City Blues” really highlights the band’s strength, especially if seen performed in a live setting. They’ll be celebrating their release on January 12th at Black Cat Mainstage with Kingsley Flood and Kindlewood-and my guess is-it’ll definitely be a packed house.

    These guys and (gal) are great live! Doesn’t really translate in the studio recorded stuff though. Unfortunately.
