With no full-length studio release in sight, U.K.’s Doves are tiding fans over with a five-song live EP.
Some Cities Live will only be available via download, beginning April 10, though the release date “may slide by a week or two,” according to the band’s web site.
Each track was recorded at a different show, including the Academy in Newcastle (“Almost Forgot Myself”), Hammersmith Apollo in London (“Snowden”), and Warsaw in Brooklyn (“Where We’re Calling From”/”Pounding”).
While most of the tracks are from the band’s 2005 album, Some Cities, the two tracks recorded in Brooklyn are off The Last Broadcast, recorded in that same borough in 2002.
