Earlier today another wonderful new Bowerbirds track began to circulate around the Internet. I might be late, but my adoration for the band never wanes, so I’ve got to toss out support for their excellent The Clearing; the album hits stored on March 6th via Dead Oceans. Beth Tacular takes the lead on this track, but she’s not alone for long, as the song drifts in and out with multiple vocal accompaniments. If this track isn’t stoking the flames of your musical fire, then I don’t know what to tell you. This track is great, this record is great. Deal with it.

The more I listen to this band, the more excited I get about their upcoming release for Thrill Jockey. On the Water will hit the street on October 4th, and it’s shaping up to be an album for everyone. There’s little hints of atmospheric ambiance thrown in here and there; you’ll find pop goodness all over the place. Even those with love for the electronica have to feel that this could really go their way. It’s hard to find a band that can wrap it up in a nice little package and win everyone over. Pretty sure that one listen to Future Islands, and we’ve all got to get on board.
