NXNE is coming up next week! For bands like Imaginary Cities it may be their debut. They are a duo consisting of Rusty Matyas (singer/guitarist) and Marti Sarbit (vocalist). Marti is a wonderful vocalist with her very simple melodies that just hook you in. Rusty on the other hand is a wonderful instrumentalist who plays almost anything which makes for some wonderful song arrangements.

Here is an EP preview of 11 track album Temporary Resident:
