What if I told you I possess a leaked track of Jerry DeCicca on vocals from a forthcoming project. I have no idea if this is the Black Swans or affiliated with La Société Expéditionnaire but it seems like a demo for a 2009 album. I like the electric southern blues direction of this.

This track is shrouded in utter mystery. The song may be written by a Tucsonan that the Ohio musician discovered late 2008 [tip thanks to Mr. Allen from the local radio station]. It could also be possible that someone overdubbed his voice in there, because the Black Swans don’t normally use such a distorted guitar. Is this a collaboration with The Warm Inventions (Hope Sandoval’s latest band after Mazzy Star). And who is the background singer? Whatever the story, it’s a good one.

Premiere of “First Time”
