Luxury Wafers Exclusive: Black Kites, Live@Chessvolt Studios with Video and Mp3s

by Landry on August 25, 2009

black-kites_26_luxury-wafersLA’s own Silverlake scene veterans, Black Kites, visited us for a live Luxury Wafers Session.

The lineup: Evelyn Reyes on keys and vocals; Alan Petherick on guitar and vocals; Nicki Nevlin on bass; Gabriel Fernandez on drums.

The lovely songbird, Evelyn, has since migrated east back to Miami, so Black Kites is now but a fond memory.

Still, we’re psyched to have recorded seven juicy tracks with Black Kites just before Reyes took flight. Enjoy the Exclusive live recordings below. They’ll make you feel good.

Evelyn’s voice is nothing short of superstar – strong and dead-on, conjuring Stevie Nicks and Natalie Imbruglia. Pethrick contributes vocally Lou Reed-esque, and the overall band performance here is comfortable, happy, in synch.

Knowing Black Kites has disbanded and listening to these great live tracks brings a tear to my eye.

Luxury Wafers wishes lots of love and good vibes to the group as they find their way forward.
