School of Seven Bells

School of Seven Bells return on July 13 with an excellent sophomore release, Disconnect From Desire, which is now available for pre-order. I know the wait might be torturous for some, so you can sample the tracks below, or stream the entire album at your leisure. I've been a helpless fanboy for this band since the moment I first heard their debut, and their super tight set at last year's Sasquatch Festival was a perfect way to take over the small stage with presence. My verdict on the new album is that it's luscious and crisp, an iterative step forward if not a giant leap, and pretty much exactly what I was hoping for - continued awesomeness. Their prowess at combining ethereal musical textures with a perfect kind of driving momentum is very addictive.
