Elizabeth & The Catapult

singer songwriter // folk pop

While I enjoy friends that are predictable, I prefer my music to surprise me. A heavy dose of dynamic songwriting will surely snag my attention, so when E&TC’s track “Momma’s Boy” slips from folk to Jon Brion pop to vaudeville and back, I can’t help but crack a smile. With an instrumentation including cello, viola, flugelhorn, bass, violins, and trumpets along with songs like “Waiting For The Kill”, Elizabeth et al. feel like America’s extroverted answer to Psapp.

1st in line from a strong, eclectic compilation.

    This one is one of my favourites.

    I haven’t commented in some time, so I thought I should and say that the way you find these bands is amazing.

    There are probably 10 extra records I need to go buy (somehow) now.

    nice find!

    in other music blogs, i have to sift through so much mediocre material to find something i like, but you seem to come up with a jewel with each post. a true example of quality over quantity.

    Genuinely impressed with “Waiting For The Kill,” and it has earned a permanent place on my playlist (as permanent as such things go).

    How often do you get to hear a song with an awesome beat, great vocals, and 5/4 time?

  12. Steph :

    If only I had found your website a while ago, I would have found them so much sooner…I actually have no clue how I found out about them, but I’m happy I did, because they’re amazing
