    Anyone else heard their new effort?

    All My Friends Are Funeral Singers

    One of my favourite bands - original, genre-bending, somehow very organic.

    Roots And Crowns (2006) was their terrific previous album.

    This one - with a bit of growing-on-me - looks all set to trump its predecessor.

    I've heard them on my recommendations on last.fm a few times, but haven't chased them up yet - thanks for the tip!

    Decent stuff - putting the alt in to alt.country (so may bands seem to fall under that category, but all too few are doing anything much that's original). On first blush - Roots and Crowns - I'd compare them to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-era Wilco (no bad thing...)
