Jeremy Messersmith's First Single Off New Album

Minneapolis-based Jeremy Messersmith is releasing his next full length The Reluctant Graveyard on May 4th. The album will contain 11 songs "about death, and perhaps, unexpectedly, life," says Messersmith. Violet! is the first track off the new album and has a 60's Beatles pop-ballad feel with high piano chords stuck at every quarter beat and a romping drum line. Messersmith will be announcing tour dates sometime soon, but make sure to check his website, where he updates every Wednesday with things like b-side tracks, ballads about his love for Star Wars and lunchtime video sessions.
