Their debut release,the Slim Volume 7” came out back in September, and Drag City just announced that their debut LP, Voices in a Rented Room is due to be released by the label on February 19th of next year.
With that announcement comes a first taste from the album, “Black Bough”. Sad, drunk and sodden, the song moves at half-speed, but Chasny and Quinn weave such gorgeous melodies that the song is not completely without hope. The diffuse-sunlit folk-country of this first track may just be habit-forming.
