Princeton's Cocoon of Love


LA-based indie pop Princeton, the group our very own LA-based Diana has blogged about before, is releasing their debut album Cocoon of Love on September 29th. I'm not normally one to directly quote the PR release, but I can't pass this one up: "Stacks of herbal tea, a glow-in-the-dark monument, paperback writers, the Wall Street Journal, a departing Mercedes, The Metamorphosis, a series of Cambridge-commissioned paintings, video arcades, graffiti, and a cyclist on the Autobahn all figure prominently into Princeton's musical sketches." Princeton is now engaged in a massive tour alongside Ra Ra Riot, Maps and Atlases, Margot & the Nuclear So and So's, and Tune-Yards. Standout dates are listed below the mp3, but for a full list, check out their myspace.
