'Losing Face' is the debut 5-song EP from Brooklyn, NY quartet, Leapling. The record is available digitally and on an extremely small vinyl pressing -- 100 on bone colored wax with the remaining 400 on virgin black. The packaging, including a gorgeous full color insert, was created & designed by Providence, RI artist Jenny Brown.
Leapling began as home recordings, written by singer/guitarist Dan Arnes over the course of several months. From there, Dan and drummer, Yoni David, edited the tracks down to what would ultimately become Losing Face and also assembled a live band, which includes bassist R.J. Gordon (who also mastered the EP) and Joey Postiglione on lead guitar.
The project is fairly new to the scene but the players are not -- they are the hearts and minds behind the Bushwick DIY venue/art space Big Snow Buffalo Lodge and the artist collective known as American Buffalo Recordings. You'd be hard pressed to find a group of people more committed to the local music community than these four dudes. Since their inception in early 2012, Leapling has performed live with friends and comrades like Twin Sister, Ava Luna, Each Other and Total Slacker.
