Indie love/hate band Joan of Arc have a new album “Flowers” due out June 9th on Polyvinyl Records
From the Polyvinyl site: Despite being written over the course of a year in four different sessions with four different lineups, the first listen reveals the songs on Flowers as a more cohesive unit than those on its predecessor Boo Human.
As the record neared completion, Tim Kinsella and the latest incarnation of Joan of Arc entered the studio with hardly any of the remaining songs written and no instruments. Instead, the group simply did what felt right, using what was available to all the musicians who had recorded there previously — pianos, acoustics, and synthesizers — to create a new batch of music after only two days.
