Around the turn of the decade, the San Francisco indie pop crew Beulah cranked out ornate, catchy Beach Boys pastiches, generating themselves some serious buzz in the process. But after releasing beloved albums like 1999’s When Your Heartstrings Break and 2001’s The Coast Is Never Clear, Beulah broke up in 2004, and we haven’t heard much from the band’s principals since.
Well, former Beulah frontman Miles Kurosky has signed with the Shout! Factory subsidiary Majordomo, home to the Airborne Toxic Event, the Von Bondies, and Earlimart. And he’s just finished work on a solo album, which is set for a March 2010 release. A U.S. tour will follow.
In a press release, Kurosky said, “Shout! Factory made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Needless to say, I’ve never been happier to find the head of a horse between my sheets. I’m very excited to be part of the ‘family.’”
