Deer Tick just announced they have a new EP that will be released on February 28th online and will be sold as a 10" during their upcoming tour. These 5 songs were recorded during the sessions for last year's solid Divine Providence. There is an acoustic version of Providence's lead single "Main Street" of singer/guitarist John McCauley performing only a few minutes after he finished writing the tune. That alone makes Tim pretty badass.
The EP starts off with the bluesy rocker "Born At Zero" to set the table for what's to come. Then as a nice break in the middle, there's the mellow burner "She's Not Spanish." The songs and flow all follow suit to Providence but are different enough that it's understandable why they missed the cut yet are obviously worth the release.
You can stream the entire EP right now over at rdio. I recommend checking it out if you're a fan of the Tick.
