The EP Four Songs consists of the last known recordings from the late vocalist/guitarist Jason Rosenthal who passed away in 2013.
The band was a short-lived project led by Jason Rosenthal, the late front-person of foundational Long Island emo band On The Might Of Princes. The EP was recorded in 2008 though never officially released until now, and is premiering today exclusively via BrooklynVegan.
Four Songs is now available for the first time ever on all streaming platforms and Bandcamp.
The Brass were a Brooklyn-based post-hardcore band that existed from 2008-2010, and featured former members of Long Island DIY scene staples On The Might Of Princes and Latterman.
Four Songs was recorded in 2008 by Phil Douglas (of Iron Chic, Latterman) and are the last known recordings to be released by enigmatic front person Jason Rosenthal, who tragically passed away in 2013 at the age of 35. This is the first time these songs have been released, and they are a document of a fraught and chaotic group of individuals that loved each other, who assembled for a brief moment to create together before splintering into separate and divergent paths.
The Brass on the recording of Four Songs were:
Jason Rosenthal - vocals / guitar
Jon Ellis - vocals / guitar
Mike Campbell - bass / vocals
Stella May Vlad - drums
