Ace Reporter is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Chris Snyder. Culled from what Snyder called a “threesixfive project”, which had him work on a track a day for a year is Ace Reporter’s debut album Yearling. “Stick To”, a track from the forthcoming full-length, offers a good sampling of Ace Reporter’s sound, which recalls the moody drive of the National, just a little more immediate in its scale. It helps, too, that Snyder’s melodic baritone brings Matt Berninger’s to mind and that Ace Reporter’s detailed, vignette-based songwriting flashes glimpses of the National.
Ace Reporter will be performing the following dates at SXSW:
Fri. Mar 15 - The Parish Underground, 7:30pm
Sat. Mar 16 - Ooh La La Records Best of Brooklyn Day Party, 3:00pm
Yearling comes out on Ooh La La Records on 2/26/13.
