Limbeck - Bringin' the rural to your 'politan

I love Limbeck.

The band, which hails from Southern California, has been making great alt-country-type music for several years now on the Get Up Kids' imprint, Doghouse Records. As a matter of fact, if you strip away the angstier influences of the Get Up Kids and add more Americana influences you may get a decent idea of the sound the boys are making. I haven't been drinking to their music (yet...) but I'd imagine it's great drinking music.

They've finished recording their new record with super-producer Ed Rose at Black Lodge Studio and it should be available sometime this spring. Before then, however, we can get a good glimpse of the sound of the record when you can stream some of the new music on an unfortunate day on the 14th of this month on "some nice websites", as they put it. And then the new single, "Big Drag", will also be available on their extensive tour. Look at the dates below. The boys are gonna be tired. But try to get out to see 'em. They sound great live.

Listen to the tunes via Doghouse Records:

EDIT - the good people at Doghouse are having problems with the link to the song "Julia". Sorry 'bout that.

Also, swing by the Myspace Page to download my personal favorite, "Sin City".
