new Elvis Perkins in Dearland album

The new (self-titled) Elvis Perkins in Dearland album came out this week, but I think only on Amie Street (at least until next week). Some of the tracks contain everything I love about the spotlight-stealing band: the rumbling bass drum, the bouncy bass line, the slightly country-style guitar and occasional harmonica. Beyond their well-honed style, they span a good variety of different sounds, proving that they remain a versatile band. Yet another quality album from a very talented band. Definitely give it a listen. And then a couple more listens. And then you probably won't want to stop listening to it.

On a random note, their album art for some reason made me think of this Editors' album (yeah, I know, they're not really similar. I guess it's just my crazy brain...?). Coincidentally, Editors also came out with a new album this week but I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. Hopefully I'll have a chance to do that soon, but I'm sure it's good.

Don't forget that buying the album on Amie Street will give $2 to the Clearwater, an educational and advocacy organization whose focus is keeping the Hudson River clean.
