Epirus Quartet: Transatlantic

Read "Transatlantic" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Epirus Quartet is based in Austin, Texas, but takes its name from a region of Greece--hence, perhaps, the decision to name its debut album Transatlantic. The recording is released as a limited edition, high-quality, vinyl album (it's also available as a download)--the format lends itself superbly to the quartet's brand of danceable, organ-led music.
