Nine Pound Shadow is the sibling synergy of brother Breandain and Christopher Langlois, who have soft-rocked themselves out of Berkeley and onto the small roster at 30th Century Records, the imprint founded by Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse) that includes the likes of Autolux, Grandaddy, Big Search and Waterstrider. The duo caught Danger Mouse’s ear with the billowy single “Melody,” which was produced by somebody whom Burton once produced, Asa Taccone of Electric Guest. The Langlois brothers followed this summer with “Bridges,” a sweetly hazy commingling of keyboards and strummed guitar. Nine Pound Shadow’s debut EP was originally scheduled to be released this fall, but it’s been pushed back until after the first of the year, possibly February. They’ll visit L.A. next week to preview it.
