Get a little "Closer To God" with Wilder Maker.

Wilder Maker's new album Zion isn't out until July, which is a shame since it seems like the perfect soundtrack for that gently gliding of Spring into Summer. The airy and buoyant melodies reel lazily out at their own pace, one song clocks into a wonderfully building ten minute opus that remains entrancing throughout,  and its one of those albums that makes the most sense when you strap in and just listen to the whole thing from start to finish.

Since you can't do that quite yet, the band did just release the first single off Zion, "Closer To God." It's a good sample of what to expect, even if it a little more conventionally poppier than some of the other tracks on the album.

The band is on a short tour this week, making their way to SXSW, so if you're attending the festival you might want to check out one of their shows to hear more of the new album before it comes out.
