    Elizabeth and the Catapult have been here before. Sure, we traded the actual Guest Apartment for the warm glow of Rockwood Music Hall this time around. But our new segment is very much a been there, done that sort of situation. Only this time we did it better...

    In the year since we last filmed the Brooklyn pop outfit, E and the C have grown quite a bit. I distinctively remember that last session being charming, but perhaps a bit clumsy...though we'll take the fall for production on that one. Still, the band seem much more polished...damn near perfect, actually. I suspect their time on the road has something to do with their gelling as an outfit. Elizabeth herself actually credits it for helping to inspire (at least lyrically) their new album The Other Side of Zero. It's a record that appropriately enough currently has the band traversing the states in support of yet again.

    Before the band took off, we managed to slide them in line for one of our Rockwood Sessions during CMJ. Intimate and personal as always, the video profiles both the band, their latest adventures together, and of course the wondrous music they dream up. An unexpected duet titled "Guardian Angel" leads the way with slow and somber tones...though the feeling doesn't last long. "Go Away My Lover" hits much harder; a riffy little number that packs a percussive punch on the side. Then there's "Race You"; a song the band admits "sounds like a children's song". The band performs two others, though we wouldn't want to spoil too much with copy. Just know that Elizabeth and the Catapult navigate a variety of moods over the course of their performance...an impressive feat indeed. It all makes for a feel good profile of a band we'll always be rooting for. - David Pitz
