Sometimes it’s nice to fly under the radar-Fruit Bats (Sub Pop July 26)

If I was Stereogum, Fluxblog or Scenstars I might be getting a cease and desist from Sub Pop for writing about this so early. But as it is I think I’m safe what with all the folky, roots music posts I do I don’t think I’m enemy #1 yet.

The Fruit Bats are from Chicago and record for Sub Pop. The main guy behind Fruit Bats is Eric Johnson he and his odd assortment of musicians have been touring with The Shins, Iron And Wine and Wilco and honing their rich orchestrated pop sound. Spelled In Bones begun as a “dark bummer record” has turned into an uplifting pop masterpiece especially the songs “Silent Life” and “Every Day That We Wake Up It’s A Beautiful Day”. Make a note to preorder this one soon from Amazon.
