One of the Nice Things About Twitter

Is sometimes, people ask to follow you who turn out to be really good bands. I’ve had The King and The Thief on repeat over the past couple of days. In addition to having a nicely allusive name, they’ve got this sound that’s simultaneously rich and sounds a little bit isolated: I feel like I’m listening to a Western. I particularly like “Clocks Are Grinning” and “The Blacksmith.”
