This was released online a couple of weeks ago, but I totally had no idea Ra Ra Riot were even releasing a new album until last week. Since then The Orchard (which comes out 8/24) has been pretty much all I’ve been listening to. Can’t say I was a huge fan of their debut, which reeked of a bit too much Vampire Weekend, but their new album is far more stately, pushing the strings (and those gorgeous girls) to the front of the mix and generally slowing the pace down. Of course, “Boy” differs from most else on the album by being ridiculously bubbly, but it’s also infinitely catchy and is just the kind of summer tune I want right now.

yeah i didn't dig the debut from these guys but i'll give this a listen and check their second out if it's a big improvement

I heard Can You Tell off the debut and thought the record would be gold, but was sadly disappointed by the rest of it. Hopefully this one is better. If this song is any indication, it is.
