Bela Karoli in the studio with Ian Cooke

Bela Karoli has been in Helmet Room Studio working on the follow-up to band's outstanding debut, Furnished Rooms. Tentatively titled, Digital Sixes, the album will feature members Julie Davis (vocals, bass), Brigid McAuliffe (accordion, vocals), Carrie Beeder (violin, cello) and James Han (keyboards), as well as some help from cellist/singer Ian Cooke and possibly Nathaniel Rateliff of Born in the Flood and the Wheel. The band's December 6 show at the Gothic Theatre with Everything Absent or Distorted (who will celebrate the release of its debut, The Soft Civil War) might be the last time to see Bela Karoli live for awhile as the band will be focusing on the new album in the coming months. Sarah Levin, Bela Karoli's manager, says the band is hoping to release the album sometime next summer. --Jon Solomon
