Darlingside, today’s Ephband of note, has a new album out — and it’s deservedly getting strong reviews:

With “Extralife,” Darlingside leaps ahead of where it had been on earlier works like its 2015 album, “Birds Say.” The voices remain as strong as ever while the arrangements are more adventurous, blurring the lines between genres and giving the group access to several audiences. When I mentioned to Messrs. Mukharji and Paseltiner that I couldn’t quite figure out where they fit in the contemporary rock-and-pop landscape, they conceded, in unison, that they couldn’t either. Neither musician seemed particularly troubled by the thought.

It’s worth noting that Darlingside’s aforementioned 2015 album, “Birds Say,” received wide critical acclaim.

For those who don’t know, Darlingside is a band now consisting of  four former members of the Williams Octet — Harris Paseltiner (09), Auyon Mukharji (07), Don Mitchell (06), and Dave Senft (07).   You can learn more about the group more in this somewhat outdated Williams feature: https://howdyougetthere.williams.edu/darlingside-the-band-06-07-09/.
