Coming To Your Local Bandstand: Maritime

MaritimeOne of our favorite records of the first half of 2006 is Maritime's We, The Vehicles, so we were excited to see these tour dates come across the teletype earlier this summer. Particularly since that last date on the list below is right down the street from :: clicky clicky :: hovelquarters. If you are not up-to-speed, Maritime formed a couple years back and features Promise Ring's Davey Von Bohlen and Dan Didier plying their indie pop powers in tandem. Ex-Dismemberment Plan bassist Eric Axelson was also on board, but he left the band earlier this year to concentrate on not touring the U.S. in an indie rock band. Not too long afterward Flameshovel issued Maritime's aforementioned sophomore full-length. We reviewed the track "Tearing Up The Oxygen" here in March, and we bet the link in that item to the hi-fi MP3 is still working, so give it a try. We've posted two more MP3s below, and for more Maritime goodness, check out the band's recent session and interview with the fine folks over at Daytrotter here.
