Princeton is a Los Angeles-based trio that are releasing their second recording, the Bloomsbury EP, this summer. The group lives in an aging green house on a hillside in the Eagle Rock district of LA where they hermetically pieced together the songs for Bloomsbury.

Each composition on the EP is lyrically focused upon a member of the influential Bloomsbury intellectual collective that existed in London during the early 20th century. Lyrical portraits of Leonard Woolf, Lytton Strachey, Virginia Woolf and John Maynard Keynes are each presented in a different musical framework with lush orchestral arrangements that draw from a collage of influences — Serge Gainsbourg's Gainsbourg Percussions, The Kinks' Something Else, Jorge Ben's Forca Bruta and Jean Claude Vannier's L'enfant La Mouche Et Les Allumettes to name a few. The record was mixed by Pete Weiss (Moe Tucker, Lee Ranaldo, Aimee Mann) and mastered by Jeff Lipton (The Magnetic Fields, Spoon, Jeff Tweedy/Wilco).

The band is comprised of twin brothers Jesse (Vocals, Guitar, Ukulele, Drums, Keyboards) and Matt Kivel (Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards), and Ben Usen (Piano, Harpsichord, Organ, Fender Rhodes). The Kivels met Ben at the age of five while attending elementary school in Los Angeles. Six years later they formed a tentative musical partnership after watching the 1996 Tom Hanks film "That Thing You Do!" A wide array of home recordings, live concerts and music video projects would follow with a constantly shifting cast of local collaborators.
