I can't really tell you how into this band I am. Almost as much as I'm into SSLYBY. But, that's for another time.
I got this album last week in the mail and I've been listening to it non-stop ever since. I listen to it while playing Madden, on the back patio drinkin', driving around town running errands...non-fucking-stop.
If you were excited about the promise their Sun Giant EP held, then you will love the new LP. It runs the gamut from folk-rock, to southern rock-ish type numbers to straight-up folky tunes. Love it!
Yes, the My Morning Jacket/Band of Horses comparisons are going to come. But, they pull off better harmonies than Jim James has ever attempted. I can't wait to see them live and see if it's studio magic or if they got the chops!
