While the band name Death Culture at Sea may be unfamiliar to you, the three gents involved should not be: Matthew Gallaway, guitarist/vocalist for NYC's Saturnine; Matt Kadane of Bedhead and The New Year; with their mutual friend and bandmate - Saturnine and The New Year bassist Mike Donofrio.
Their 5-track debut EP, "God Loves Lola", arrives as a complete surprise. Recorded a couple months ago when the trio convened for a two-day session in Brooklyn with engineer/musician Ian Love (of many bands, including Rival Schools), it features Gallaway on vocals and guitar, Donofrio on bass, and Kadane on both drums and guitar. Given that, you'd imagine it would sound like a perfect marriage (or a least a weekend fling) between Saturnine and The New Year... and you'd be right. To me, that's nothing but a good thing, and a perfect addition to my impending autumn's soundtrack.
Here's my favorite of the five songs...

While the band has no concrete future plans, no live dates in the works, Matthew says they haven't ruled out getting together and recording more songs down the road. Here's hoping.
