While the blogger world has been hyping the heck out of the new Maritime record, I have to say: ABOUT TIME! Davey von Bohlen is a talented fellow, and it's good to hear that his pop-writing touch is only improving with age. Sure, these songs have been floating around mp3-poster type places, I figured I'd share 'em here, too. These two songs are really...well, I know I hate to say this, but these songs soo remind me of The Promise Ring. Maybe the band's reunion last year reignited his memory of Promise Ring's writing style. Whatever the case may be, I'm stoked about these two songs. Their new album, Heresy and the Hotel Choir, will be released this September on Flameshovel.
