I love it when a band resurfaces out of the black hole of the zeitgeist to deliver something that you didn’t know you needed on a Tuesday morning. New Bums emerged much the same way on their debut — a collaboration between longtime RSTB faves Donovan Quinn and Ben Chasny, that paired up the psych-folk veterans for a worn and weary record that felt like it had an audible hangover. It was a brilliantly ruffled album and they emerge seven years later with another record that’s just as comfortably broken and bruised. The first taste of the LP, “Billy, God Damn” sails in on their smoke and soil rubbed delivery. Can’t wait for this one, but we’ll all have to be collectively patient until the record lands on shelves March 19th.
