El Obo, “Oxford Basement Collection” LP

“Swaying like a tower burned down by talking.”

Colour Revolt’s frontman Jesse Coppenbarger has actually been writing, recording, and performing under the name El Obo longer than the upcoming release date of his debut solo material might lead us to believe.  Back when Colour Revolt was first making waves, I remember happening across Jesse’s demo material on Purevolume (which are still posted a good five or six years later).  “This Is Love” struck me immediately as a track equal parts haunting, ethereal, and stunning.  I was pleased see that a new version of the track made the cut on the 13-song Oxford Basement Collection. The disc will be released via Esperanza Plantation on May 10th, and the first single “Vrgn Evl” is available for download below.
