Local News: Eagle Winged Palace Sign & More

LA folk act Eagle Winged Palace -- who routinely send music writers running for their thesauruses to find new ways to say "spooky" and "unique" -- announced today that they've signed to Park The Van, the home of popular acts like Dr. Dog and The Spinto Band. The label will digitally release the group's EP in mid-March (with an event to celebrate it at SXSW) and their full-length due in the fall.

As a fan of Eagle Winged Palace and their lead's former garage rock group The Prix (both played our Let's Independent! night), I've got to say that it's great to see them doing so well.
