An Rdio Exclusive: The Laurels’ Second Album, Plains

Laurels

The Laurels’s new album, Plains, took only ten days to record, but it was almost wiped out in an instant: a flash flood nearly washed the tapes away, but the band’s producer, Liam Judson, waded back with them in his hands, high above his head. The album is the Sydney-based psychedelic shoe-gaze outfit’s second, and finds the band toning down the reverb in favour of a cleaner sound that still evokes their live energy.

Plains is out next week, but you can hear it exclusively on Rdio, starting today. Put your flood pants on and listen below.
