Brooklyn folk act Leland Sundries released a new EP last week, The Foundry. It gathered a good amount of attention: receiving praise from fellow Americana enthusiasts The Low Anthem. Check out a track from the EP, "Monitor Arms" that sways back and forth in a 3/4 shuffle that's reminiscent of Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Elvis Perkins.

The lyrics are at the center of this song. It's a track that travels back and forth from past to present, taking place in Leland Sundries home neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The true story alternates from a 10 alarm fire in 2006 to the construction of the famous Civil War-era Monitor ironclad, both historical events of Greenpoint. Singer Nick Loss-Eaton weaves lyrics of the two events, 150 years apart, to blend the history of a neighborhood together. See, history can be fun!
