Local alt-country group Romantica are preparing to release their EP, Control Alt Country Delete
, this Sunday at the Cedar Cultural Center. And while the news of this jangly little country EP was exciting, we're even more amped to hear Ben Kyle say that they already have another full-length on the way as well. In a recent interview with HowWasTheShow.com's David de Young
, Kyle says that they hope to have the new record out this spring:
HWTS: What else is going on with Romantica these days? I understand we can expect another full length studio album in the relatively near future.
BK: Yes, we're in the thick of it and hope to put it out in the spring. I don't like that's it's been such a long time, but when you're not full time musicians (most of us have families and jobs) and you spend a lot of the available time you do have bringing the live show around the country, there's not a whole lot of time left to work on recording. If I could make a bit of a living at this I'd love to put an album out every year.
For more Romantica, head down to the Cedar Cultural Center on Sunday night for their EP-release show. Opening will be a stripped-down version of Caroline Smith's band. All ages. $10/$12 at the door. 7 p.m. 416 Cedar Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612.338.2674.
