Telling people you’re from Brooklyn will forever be cooler than telling people you’re from Bristol. That’s just a fact of life, and one that applies to New Yorkers Sport of Kings, standing them in good stead with regard to their new EP, Logic House. However, the heart of the band, Richard Kelly, is no Brooklyn native. His Dublin-based band Capratone received much airplay and released an EP and full length record. The move to the U.S switched creative directions for Kelly, who introduced an electric piano to the mix to reflect the band’s love of Steely Dan and smooth 70s rock. In fairness, as much of a turn off as that might sound, the smooth as velvet melodies and odd time signatures really work to make this an intriguing listen. The Logic House EP is released on the 12th of December, with an LP set for release in January 2012.
