David & the Citizens

Good news (we think) is that Red Blondehead survived Halloween. All fun was contained and appropriate in an adult manner, but not in an ADULT ADULT manner, if you know what I mean.

Now-the bad news. The bad news is that in all our Halloween revelry, we forgot to bring to you new tracks from David & the Citizens in a timely fashion. Their debut full-length, Until the Sadness is Gone, was unleashed upon the public October 31.

You may not have heard them, and I have debated for a long time--or at least for the past five minutes--over what to tell you they sound like. I've decided that if Rhett Miller was somehow able to procreate with Conor Oberst, a.k.a. Not the New Bob Dylan and Not Even Close but Somewhat Palatable in His Own Right, and the two were able to incorporate instruments like the Scandinavian whooping klezmer clarinet with their country-punk, raucous-but-moody, emo brooding, then, THEN they might approximate something like David & the Citizens.

And, horns in pop music? Wasn't exactly expecting that.

The End
Long Days
