After leaving indie band Le Loup, guitarist May Tabol started a new project called Pree. Their name a reference to the Neutral Milk Hotel song, “A Baby for Pree,” the D.C.-based group play charming and quaint folk. The instrumentation is warm and rustic, showered with the occasional bright tinkling of bells and tambourines, while Tabol’s front woman vocals are richly textured and feature a quirky bend reminiscent of Joanna Newsom. With music fit for a cozy cabin, Pree sounded right at home when they played at Brooklyn’s Permanent Records, a store with a tight squeeze and intimate ambiance where any audiophile can easily find comfort.
Pree’s new album, Folly, comes out October 18 on Paper Garden Records.
