Southern Femisphere Steps Ahead with New Mini Album

Charleston-based band Southern Femisphere — guitarist/drummer/singer Kim Larson, bassist/singer Emily Connor, drummer/singer Brett Nash, and guests — celebrate the release of a four-song EP titled Three Questions for Integrating. The new tunes will be available on cassette via Standard Issue, a New York-based indie zine and tape label curated by Tuesday Bassen and Jansen Cumbie.

Three Questions for Integrating has three new songs as well as a revamped version of a song from [last year’s EP]  Houses,” says Nash. “It was recorded with our dear trusted engineer/producer/alchemist Harper Marchman-Jones [of Urban Praise Band, Clint4, YR LAD] in his dad’s offices with his portable recording spaceship in the lovely leaf-changing month of September 2013 on various weekends.”

Cellist Sarah Catoe contributed to the sessions, and Connor and Larsen swapped bass and guitar duties. How does Nash compare the new EP to last year’s Houses? “Words that come to mind are ‘darker,’ ‘heavier,’ ‘metal,’ and ‘more screaming,'” he says.

Southern Femisphere will share the stage at King Dusko on King Street at 8 p.m. on Jan. 31 with Secret Lover (from Worcester, Mass.) and local act Pianojazz. It’s an all-ages show. Admission is $5. Limited  editions of Three Questions for Integrating will be available on CD at the show.
