Novi Split: New Songs

It’s been at least three years since we’ve heard something new from Novi Split.  David Jerkovich says he’s getting ready to turn a new leaf in 2014 by dusting off these tunes and collecting them in a couple EPs, Creeping Round Your Face and Spare Songs, in anticipation of sharing some newly recorded gems in 2014.  These new songs were recorded with his ace band at his new studio,  The Ocotillio, at Pehrspace in Los Angeles.

Did I mention he’s offering them up for free / $upport?  Check it out:

There is no better way to describe David J’s latest music release than to just hear it:

Novi Split – “Hollow Notes” EP Sampler Mix

or, in his own words:

Check it. Novi Split. Hollow Notes. These songs come from the last few years of recording, and were recorded for a number of reasons. 1. Hollow Notes. This is a song I wrote so when I listen to it, I can feel sorry for myself. 2. New Kids. I wrote this song not too long ago. It’s weird. 3. Keep My Word. My friend CMG wrote this one. He’s doing a better version of this song on his new album coming out in October. Check it: 4. Here’s To The Rescue. My friend Daniel Ahearn wrote this. I love this song.

The song “Hollow Notes” will lend some tenderness to a beach scene on the season premiere of the TV show One Tree Hill this Monday Sept 14th.

The EP download is available in the HUSHshop (with bonus songs) and iTunes.

Ben Barnett & David J (Novi Split) highlights

Stopping off at Portland’s The Artistery, the trifecta of Ben Barnett (of Kind of Like Spitting), David J (of Novi Split) and Sean Bonnette (of Andrew Jackson Jihad) made for a memorable evening’s performance. All were in fine form, playing a pile of covers and trying out new material on the second night of their tour of the west. Many more clips can be found here, including a lively take on “Punk Rock Girl” and a highly recommended kitchen performance of Tom T Hall’s “Chicken Song” by David J.
