Listen: The Districts – “Funeral Beds”

Philly band The Districts are a young four-piece band who recently released their self-titled EP on Fat Possum. Since then, the band has toured North America, playing shows with White Denim, Dr. Dog, and more.  The band kicked off their summer tour dates and will continue winning people over throughout the summer, with their own headlining dates alongside big name festivals like this weekend’s Boston Calling, as well as Ottawa’s Bluesfest, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.  Quite an impressive schedule, but the band is more than up to the task with their incredibly energetic live shows.

The self-titled EP features three newly remastered tracks off their 2012 self-released album Telephone, as well as two brand new tracks.

“Lancaster County, Pennsylvania’s the Districts serve up an impressive EP that straddles the line between imaginative indie rock and brisk blues-inflected folk.” – Rolling Stone

“on stage, with a confidence that doesn’t come easy to veteran acts, the band put across its impressive mix of raw rock-and-roll and quieter folkish elements.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
