Deadbeat Darlings Play a Hometown Show TomorrowDecember 19th, 2012
When his previous band broke up, Joseph King (vocals and guitar) left Austin, Texas, for New York City, where he continued to write new songs and play solo shows around town. Slowly but surely, King began gigging with other people, and eventually Deadbeat Darling—now with Mohit Bhansali (guitar and vocals), Ian Everall (bass) and Evan Howard (drums)—playing an eclectic mix of dub, reggae, surf rock and trip hop, were born. Their first LP, Weight of Wandering, came out in 2009, and the follow-up, The Angel’s Share (stream it below), was released at the beginning of this year. Deadbeat Darling (above, doing an acoustic version of “Flowers for Our Graves” at SXSW) have steadily toured ever since, and you can see them—alongside the Stationary Set, Desert Stars and Sky White Tiger—tomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom.
