A new single slips out under the radar from Houston’s Leon III and the band embraces extended lengths on the winding, almost ten minute “Fly Migrator.” Again produced by Mark Nevers (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Silver Jews) as was their debut LP, the cut boasts William Tyler on guitar among the nebulous, dawn-light mists. The band rises slow setting into a sauntered grooved before wide vistas of vocal harmonies, misted synths, and shuffling beat. The band never loses cool and while the song feels like it might want to break into fiery guitar, the band keep things simmering just below the boiling point. It’s a nice opening salvo, and I’m interested to see how it might tie into any other new material. No word if this is a standalone offering or if there’s a new LP on the way, but for now, this is a decent amount to chew on.
