New Southern Dream Pop From Black Books

I’d never heard of the style “southern dream pop”, so when I saw this song by Black Books labeled as such, I decided to steal the term and use it for my post.  If you check out the song below, “Like You Best”, you’d be hard pressed not to agree with the word choice by the band.  It’s definitely got the style we’ve grown to love from the band with the reverb laden vocals, building rhythms, and tons of emotion in every word.

You can purchase this tune with the B-side “Shipwrecked” on a fancy pants coke bottle clear 7″ vinyl over on the Black Books bandcamp site.
