Garnering nostalgic comparisons to Ziggy Stardust, Queen and even Morrissey, James Supercave is anything but ordinary. The art-pop quintet has been teasing local audiences with assorted singles and exuberant shows for more than two years, originally by the name Masxs. Fans can finally stop holding their breath as the group's debut, The Afternoon, is slated for release March 25 on Hit City U.S.A. The four-song EP features their clever and nimble compositions, off-beat rhythms and lead singer Joaquin Pastor's signature stunning falsettos. While the lyrics imply an aching heart, the instrumental details are invigorating, sultry and always conclude long before you're ready to let go. Landing on the eve of their EP release, this will no doubt be a special night in their monthlong residency at the Echo.
