Spirit Animal – “Makin’ It Work”

From The Cost of Living [2010]

After moving from LA to the east coast (splitting time between DC and NYC), Spirit Animal is quickly making a name for themselves as remix masters. Recent remixes of How to Dress Well,  Ennui and Jenny O have proven that, and they promise to unload a remix of Marnie Stern’s  “Transparency is the New Mystery” very soon.

But where this band really shines is playing their own tunes live. Their debut record The Cost of Living is a highly energetic affair that excels as a live experience where the band can use their energy to make the crowd move. Frontman Steve Cooper has an enormous presence that is rare in New York bands.

See Spirit Animal live at Pianos on February 21st w/ Neighbors, Ennui and Courtier
