new bodies of water :: "under the pines"
Now for something completely unrelated to that last post: gorilla vs. booze alums Bodies of Water have a new record called A Certain Feeling coming out in July on Secretly Canadian.

A Certain Feeling is out July 22 on Secretly Canadian. The label tells it like this:
...it's a cohesive collection that comes out feeling like the anthemic prog/gospel/psychedelic/kraut-tribal movie score that Ennio Morricone and Phil Spector never got around to collaborating on...Steve Reich organ figures blend into a Wagner meets Sabbath riff. A shape-note choir is dropped into the midst of an Upsetters/ESG jam. Musique concrete meanderings beget Velvet Underground plodding that escalates into a five-time tropicalia workout...
