I’ll carry you all the way home

Technically, all four members are in this picture
I’ve been off-line for four days, hanging out by the lake in Nelson, BC. What have I missed? Is there a hip new social networking website yet?

Speaking out hanging out by a lake, here’s “Down by the Water” by the Drums. It’s a strange choice of single, given that it’s by far the slowest, saddest track on the band’s recently-released debut LP. Singer Jonathan Pierce goes into full crooner mode, making melodramatic promises of eternal love while his bandmates jangle gently behind him. It’s a much different side of the Drums than I’ve previously written about, but it’s interesting to hear them deviate from their usual bouncy beach pop sound.

Head to Exclaim! to read my article about the band’s upcoming tour with Surfer Blood.
