New LP from Warm in the Wake

Last week Decatur, Georgia, indie folk/pop act Warm in the Wake unleashed their newest release, American Prehistoric. I've only given it a couple spins so far, but it strikes me as an enjoyable exercise in rootsy pop. Some tunes bounce with whimsical piano and harmonica riffs, while others ride along on big hooks not unlike some of The Me Decade's finest power pop. If you were a fan of Gold Dust Trail (as I was/am), I doubt you'll be disappointed.

You can listen to the entirety of American Prehistoric online, or download a couple tracks here:

Warm in the Wake - American Prehistoric
Warm in the Wake - Devil with a Fist

The album is available from Livewire Recordings, as is their EP.

Ha! Very nice. I still haven't figured out my regular place to pick up Southeast Performer in Athens. Sigh.
