IR Orlando #5
Lots of good music this week… not a lot to say, except sit back and enjoy!
New Roman Times
Founded by husband and wife team Dan and Josie,New Roman Times is one of my favorite Orlando bands. This track is from their excellent new ‘Brighter Days Darker Nights’ EP.

This track is from their brand-new self-titled debut CD (available at CD Baby) on Autocratic Records. Like many of us Orlandoans, the members of The Aristocracy hail from other parts of the country.
Their bio says it best:
