Finally! No, I’m joking. I’m not even sure what membership in that genre entails, but since I got an exclusive email from The Great Northwest (their record company, actually), I thought I might as well show my appreciation by plugging the band’s upcoming, “much anticipated” debut.
SO: The Great Northwest’s first album, The Widespread Reign of The Great Northwest, comes out July 29, and promises to feature “lush soundscapes” and “savvy wordplay.” So if you’re into “ambient modulations,” etc., (I’m pretty sure I’m not), check it out. Here’s their myspace.
