the second EP description:
While writing and prepping to get into the studio this November to record our first full length, we have been making demos of new material in our homes and testing the songs out at shows. To bridge the gap between now and when the album is finished and released in early 2012 we have decided to release some of these demos in their early stages. The six track EP offers 5 new originals and a cover of “Wrecking Ball” written by Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. “Wrecking Ball” features our first track to have all 5 members of the band sing lead and we hope we did the song justice. So there you have it, please enjoy this free EP of pre-production demos and get excited for a full album coming real soon! Please share with friends

glad to see on their About Us page they explained the origin of their name:
At the 2012 Flagpole Music Awards in Athens, GA, The DAs were honored to take home Best Album Artwork and Best Album for Slowburner as well as Artist of the Year.Formed in late 2009, The District Attorneys are a band of young twenty-somethings from Atlanta and Athens, Georgia. Founded by high school friends, Drew Beskin and Chris Wilson, The D.A.s are a blend of various styles (Americana, Indie, Pop) and are influenced by The Replacements and Modest Mouse as much as the Beach Boys and Rilo Kiley. Like these artists, The D.A.s (named after a Bob Dylan song) try to expand their sound while believing in the key ingredient….great songs.
