Art Sorority For Girls
A D.C. pop band with deep roots in New York anti-folk, Art Sorority for Girls has been the vessel for Daoud Tyler-Ameen’s wordy, witty songwriting since 2002. In that time, it has been a boy-girl duo with keyboards and harmonies, a trio featuring a baritone guitar, a classic-rock quartet and a shambling collective with half a dozen rotating players.
Slow Dance is Art Sorority for Girls’ full-length debut, recorded in fits and starts over several years and quietly released at the end of 2011. In a brisk 35 minutes, the album careens through chapters of early adulthood, beginning with the title track (about wishing high school could last forever) and concluding with “Tree of Sympathy” (about finally getting up the nerve to leave your hometown). The second Art Sorority LP, recorded in the band’s latest incarnation as a wiry two-piece, is currently in production; look for it in late 2013.
