Duke Chevalier: Ace of Swords

Ace of Swords cover art

Ace of Swords is the new EP from Sacramento artist Duke Chevalier, aka Sam Eliot Stern. The 5 tracks are polished and catchy pop songs, with a strong influence of what has become a "mainstream" indie sound. Reverby, and commercial, this is a record made for indie radio, with tight arrangements, and cliched instrumentals.This will appeal to fans of dream pop and folk rock, but don't expect any edge pushing or original touches. This is the indie equivalent of Top 40. Stream and buy Ace of Swords at the link below.
