I don’t know why this album isn’t getting more buzz across the ol’ internets, because it is pretty much the epitome of a joyous summer album. Blake & John are back with their second full-length record, full of retro 60’s sounds, delicious melodies and the world’s most unsung musical instrument: the tambourine. Viva la tambourine. Viva Honeysuckle Weeks.

Dude. No, seriously…dude.
Last night I downloaded this album for my flight to the east coast. The whole way here—after playing the album over and over agaiy—I was thinking, why haven’t I heard about this band before?! Ryan and Ethan are always talking about new music and is it possible that I might have found something really good that they don’t know about?!
It’s absolutely the best album for this summer and I’ve already put a dent in my iPod hard drive listening to it over and over again. Coldplay’s new album is good but I think the tone is better for the Fall, whereas H.W. needs to be played now.
I stumbled upon their live performance on KCRW. Don’t miss the vidcast of their three song set.
