Fol Chen

Fol Chen - In Ruins
Fol Chen - They Came To Me

Man, this is a goddamn quirky-as-all-get-out, but ultimately über-catchy and super-dooper endearing little disc. It pains me a bit to admit that I completely missed out on Fol Chen's previous release, Part I: John Shade, Your Fortune's Made*, but with the release of this sequel album, appropriately dubbed Part II: The New December, I'm making up for lost time with these addictive and innovative new tracks that are quite rightfully bouncing around on the insides of my skull.

*This one's got a mysterious, seemingly Nabokov-inspired theme (or at the very least, an odd passing reference) that immediately piqued my dorky, lit. major interests. Go figure.

Part II: The New December will be released on July 6th, via Asthmatic Kitty
