I’ve been listening to The Autumns’ In the Russet Gold of This Vain Hour for the past couple of days in my car, and if there was ever a band that deserved a break, it’d be these guys. Seriously, long before Sigur Rós came on the scene, these guys were blending ethereal guitars with wispy falsettos and glossolalia-type lyrics.
It’s been 4 years since their last full-length, with all sorts of setbacks and difficulties in the interim. However, it looks like that’ll soon be in the past. The band is scheduled to release their newest album, Nocturnes and Subades, in September on Pseudopod Records. The European release will be handled by Bella Union Records.
Until then, click here to listen to “Slumberdoll,” which will be on the upcoming album.
