While we wait for the Local Natives album (who didn’t see the Pitchfork “Best New Music” credit coming?) to drop tomorrow so we can all revel in its glory, NPR has provided some more good music to keep our anticipation civil.
You can hear Clem Snide‘s seventh album, The Meat of Life, in its entirety until its Feb. 23 release right here.
It’s good stuff. The album sounds almost immediately classic and deeply honest. Singer Eef Barzelay’s voice carries the songs well- nothing extreme, but all together enjoyable- much the same as the chord progressions sound.
Form your own more in-depth analysis of this record, and leave it in the comments section directly underneath this post. Discussion, anyone?
