Met these guys down in Austin in an alley behind the venue where the Carpark showcase was taking place.
Unfortunately I didn't get to see them play that night, which is a bummer, not only because I have a soft-spot for fellow midwesterners (they're from Chicago, me, Milwaukee) but because the more I listen to the promo of this album, I wished I would've seen them then before they get too big, which could be a likely scenario, given the quality of this release.
Look for it out on Carpark in June.
Also to note, I wanted to post the second song (Oh, Ivory!) but after doing some nosing around on the web, I saw that it hadn't been posted/leaked yet and so I didn't feel right letting that one out yet, in respect of the band and label.
So in the meantime, give a gander to this track, the first song on the record and one I also dig.
Also, don't forget to go out and support your local independent record stores on Saturday.
It's Record Store Day!
Lots of rad exclusives and in-store performances.
