Through the Sparks - Lazarus Beach

Red Blondehead has been on pins and needles about posting some tracks from Birmingham, AL natives Through the Sparks' debut full-length record, Lazarus Beach. It's darkly beautiful and upbeat-sounding yet often menacing thematically. Lyrically clever and musically dense, the record always features something interesting to focus on, even in the songs with more downbeat tempos.

But that's enough talking about a record that can speak volumes for itself, so why not giddy up and have a listen.

PS: If you're in the Birmingham area, you can catch Through the Sparks' CD release party for Lazarus Beach next Saturday, May 5 at the Bottletree.

Or you could just read the lyrics on the CD cover.

hmm... sounds like someone could use a refresher in reading comprehension skills.
