and his merry band of old-timey rock-mongers already dropped a scratchy tune on us called "Man On Fire"
, from their forthcoming LP, Here
. Today, we noticed a new song "That's What's Up" making the rounds, inspiring head-nods and hand claps with its delightfully unstuck-in-time aesthetic. Give it a jingle below.
It turns out Here
is only one of two albums the band will put out this year. Lead singer Alexander Ebert explained:
"In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say... Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives."
