New John Vanderslice

NPR is now (and by "now" I mean May 11, so you might have to wait a few days) streaming the entire new John Vanderslice album Romanian Names (out May 19th). Hooray for NPR for reminding us it's way more then just our parents' fave news source. Listen here

Also let us remind you JV is the long-anointed "nicest man in indie rock", as if you didn't know that already. I've never seen a singer give out so many gracious post-show hugs to fans. I kid you not.

And here's a preview track for download:

Too Much Time - John Vanderslice

it could just be the omg-brand-new-record knee-jerk syndrome, but i am really tempted to proclaim this jv's best album yet. he and solter have really outdone themselves in terms of their attention to sonic detail; the album as a whole is beautifully and meticulously crafted. after hearing about half of the album debuted in solo acoustic form, i was fooled into expecting a rather simple, stripped-down album, but i am only too happy to be proven wrong.

the fact that it comes on the heels of the brilliant moon colony bloodbath ep makes it that much more impressive.
