Local folk-rockers Star & Micey, our readers' third favorite local band according to the recent Best of Memphis poll, released their new four-song EP, I Can't Wait, today. Recorded in Oxford, Mississippi with producer Dennis Herring and released via Ardent Music, it's the band's most high-profile release since their eponymous 2009 debut album.
The band will celebrate the release with a show at the Hi-Tone Café Thursday night and then hit the road for a month-long tour. To help finance the tour, they've started a Pledge Music account to raise funds. There, fans can make pledges that will garner rewards ranging from simply a download of the EP along with band updates to a signed guitar or a lifetime guest-list spot, with plenty of items and services in-between.
We feature Star & Micey in this week's paper, on the streets of Memphis tomorrow and online Thursday.
Until then, here's the fun new video for the EP's title single:
