An ongoing collaboration of local musicians and friends, Honeycomb has many familiar faces, such as cellist Nate Blaz of Geographer and folk singer-songwriter Kacey Johansing. This local flavor has together created a new EP scheduled out this spring.

The release party for the EP will work in conjunction with Honeycomb’s Noise Pop appearance (with John Vanderslice, Nurses and Conspiracy of Venus at the Swedish American Music Hall Feb. 26). But for a sooner preview, they’ll be performing this Wednesday at the Elbo Room with The Spindles and Annie Bacon & Her Oshen (9pm, $7).

Update: As noted in the comments, Honeycomb won’t be playing Wednesday night, although Annie Bacon & Her Oshen and The Spindles will still be performing. Honeycomb will, however, be playing on January 29th with Michael Musika at a special Chasing the Moon event. More details here.

To hold us over, Honeycomb recently sent us this soulful number from the upcoming EP:
