"Fell So Hard" is a fine example of where Thalia Zedek's present and past meet, combining the broader, more open palette of 2013's Via with the heft of the blues-tinged indie sound that Come pioneered.

Thalia Zedek had a fairly prolific 2013, what with the release of her band’s standout album Via and the reunion of her best-known vehicle Come behind the reissue of its 1992 debut Eleven: Eleven. Working off that momentum, Zedek and her band recorded another EP Six in October 2013. Premiering on PopMatters, Six‘s leadoff track “Fell So Hard” is a fine example of where Zedek’s present and past meet, combining the broader, more open palette of Via with the heft of the blues-tinged indie sound that Come pioneered. Thalia Zedek Band’s Six comes out on 25 February, via Thrill Jockey.
