2013-04-26 by Anthracks | 8 Comments
Athens Indie Pop band have announced via their Facebook page that a new album, Lousy With Sylvianbriar, is complete and set to release at some point this Fall. Songwriter Kevin Barnes has stated that this album will feature a departure in sound from the last few albums, citing inspirations such as The Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Flying Burrito Brothers, and Sylvia Plath. He wrote the songs during a two week "self-imposed isolation experiment."
Fans of the band who contributed to the Kickstarter last year can also look forward to Young Froth / Taypiss which is being shipped out this week. This release features the earliest known material recorded by the band. Also, come Summer, the band's documentary, Song Dynasties, should also be complete.
Here is a song from the rarities compilation:

We've also heard about a collaborative album with vocalist Rebecca Cash under a new name, but we don't know if this is one in the same. The band is also to go on hiatus, supposedly. But that doesn't really matter since Kevin is the band on album.

I really enjoyed Paralytic Stalks and the description for this new one sounds intriguing as hell.
It's always fun to see what Kevin will do next
There are no limits to your love for this band and that feels good
These guys are really prolific.
