Pree, led by May Tabol (formerly of Le Loup) emerged onto the DC music scene
with a string of compelling and intimate shows during the summer of 2008. Pree's
musical prowess evokes seductive and shadowy moods that call to mind Regina
Spektor's imaginative narratives as well as Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock's
rhythmic vocal stylings-- mixing haunting folk elements, unmistakable vocals,
and a remarkable command of words to elicit a fare as delicate as it is
Pree's debut album explores the dangers of building concrete walls
around intangible thoughts and impulses-- walls ultimately unable to house the
complex individuals they seek to shape, limit and define. Speaking through
characters with fractured personalities and questionable motives, A Chopping
Block examines the chaotic and often destructive relationships that take root
when individual fails to adopt cohesive and socially acceptable identities--
raising the question of whether social boundaries will ever be able to quantify
and contain any force as powerful and unstable, and as beautiful and reckless as
the human psyche.

The Kora Records sent over an Mp3 from their next album release which is from a band named Pree. I was immediatley interested in this song only after a few seconds of hitting play.
Below is The Kora Record's write up/background on the band and also is the MP3 below. You'll see references below about Modest Mouse/Isaac Brock..and i hear a little of that especially 2002's Sharpen your Teeth from Ugly Cassanova.
