Chief's Debut Album + NYC Shows (Free MP3 Download)

Modern Rituals

A couple of months ago I went to Union Pool to see what was dubbed as one of the last Wild Yaks shows ever. It was outside during the day and they played as a 3 piece. After they finished up a band from LA called Chief went on. I didn't know anything about them at the time but a few friends of mine seemed super excited about it. After about 30 seconds of the first song I could see why.

Chief's sound, at least from what I saw live, has an "Allman Brothers if they were a mellow indie band" vibe. That's not to say Chief has a particularly country rock sound but there are traces of it here and there. After listening to the single though I'm not sure that comes across in the recording. Nonetheless, describe them as you like, when all is said and done they're just a really good band. They're releasing their debut album called Modern Rituals on August 17th, you can pre-order it here or just stream it on MySpace starting today.


Chief has three shows coming up in NYC if you want to check them out live.
