Based on the podcast conversation and the snippets of songs they played throughout, it was obvious the band's sophomore effort took a very different route than the band's borderline shoegaze-pop debut. So I hopped on over to the project's Pledgemusic page, where the album is currently available for pre-sale, and immediately bought a copy so I could get access to the immediate free download of the whole thing (the CDs are still being manufactured and the vinyl is currently in production).
And it's great. I know I probably shouldn't say this, but it sounds very early Superdrag in a very good way. If been listening to it since I downloaded it a while ago.
There's only a free days left to get in on the pre-order, and I highly recommend you do so, since the extra downloads of demos and other tracks make it well worth the dough. It's such good old-fashioned power-pop goodness that it's mixed in mono!
