These guys have been making amazing shit for flippin' ages now but I'm posting this because they have a righteous new album AND they're playing in Newcastle Upon Tyne July 8th (!!!). They also of course feature RQ fav Valet aka Honey Owens whose tumble of tom drums run below this amazing sunshower of a jam, gazing deep into Pacific Midwestern mythos and leaving that typical brightness sitting as a gloss over top. The new LP is pretty diverse with some darker ones ie "Lost Jimmy Walen" but there's that terrific liquidy experimentalism between the off-kilter Americana. But yeah, Newcastle; it's at the Star & Shadow, July 8th w/ Jazzfinger, Dragging An Ox Through Water and Onoma.
