7th? album from Austin, Texas band--mid-tempo Americana songs delivered with a purity of vision and the kind of energy which arises only from memories and emotion born of real experience. Will Sheff's lyrics are alive with the surreal brilliance of storytelling magic, and his soulful voice elegantly captures the bittersweet essence of small town life.

The music rings with a country/soul rock charm that oozes with the honest angst of existential absorption; like squeezing the lifeblood from a soul-sponge and hearing the splatter-tingle of its gift. The sound is tight & sparkling, with a rootsy vigor that's fleshed out with fun. Includes members of Shear- water and My Jerusalem. Reminiscent of artists like Hold Steady, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Bruce Springsteen, Magnolia Electric Co., Iron & Wine. "The Silver Gymnasium" feels real. It's an album to embrace, a treasure to sink into. Excellent.
