Parts & Labor - seen at this year's Supersonic festival in Birmingham (review) - are to release their new album Receivers on November 3.
That's the UK release, anyway; stateside readers can enjoy it a little earlier, on October 21. Says the blurb:
"Receivers finds Parts & Labor focusing on open spaces, longer movements, expansive arrangements and loftier goals. On eight epic tracks, Receivers showcases the band's catchiest and darkest moods to date, reveling in a growing dynamic sensibility only hinted at in their previous work."
Sounds decent to us. Since the band's last album, Mapmaker (review), the trio have expanded to a four-piece, welcoming guitarist Sarah Lipstate (pictured at Supersonic) to the fold. Without sounding too pervy: grr. Too pervy? Sorry.
The album's tracklisting looks like this:
'Nowheres Nigh' (MP3 here)
'The Ceasing Now'
'Wedding In A Wasteland'
'Solemn Show World'
