Perfect Games, the first single, comes from Now or Heaven, to be released on Merge on Sept. 9.
I liked Pitchfork’s description of the song as containing “warm-weather lyrics.” It’s a song to pop on for the early-morning wake-up and to remember to grab the day before it’s gone: “We waste our time when we could be righting every wrong.”
I’m serious, though: Have these guys written a tune that isn’t catchy? I wonder.
BONUS: Live on WOXY from November (remember?)
