DOWNLOAD: Victor Villarreal - "Enters" (MP3)


Victor Villarreal of Cap'n Jazz and its related projects (Joan of Arc, Owls, Ghosts & Vodka) is set to release his debut solo effort Invisible Cinema, out January 24th via Joyful Noise. The album's first track (and single) "Enters" is available for both download above, and to stream below. To quote BrooklynVegan's Andrew Sacher:

Like his guitar work in his previous bands, "Enters" is filled with math rock noodling through pretty chord progressions. The largely acoustic guitar and string arrangement-led track is most reminiscent of fellow Cap'n Jazz member Mike Kinsella's work in Owen, but when the vocals finally come in at the end, he reveals a much starker voice than Owen's brokenhearted throb.

Pre-order Invisible Cinema now, and check out its tracklisting below.

Villarreal will kick off a month-long run with Meryll on January 20th, at Mike & Molly's in Champaign. The following day, he'll play a 5PM instore at Reckless Records and then at Panchos that night with Meryll, A Tundra, and White/Light. Tickets are on sale now. His final in-state show will be on January 27th, at Owen Pye's in Lebanon (which is about 5-hours outside of Chicago). In support of the full tour, he's launched a Kickstarter campaign to help with its costs. At the time of this post, the campaign has hit $730 of his $1,900 goal (with 17 backers).
