If you’ve come here regularly enough over the years, you know that I have a little bit of man love for both Jay Farrar & Anders Parker. Both of them have provided some of my favorite music over the last 10-15 years, so when I heard last spring that they were actually recording an album together, well, that sent me over the edge a little. I can’t really think of a better combination. That being said, in order to not burn out on either artist, since the month of June I’ve had them (and their previous bands) off the IPod.

Today I hit the Jay Farrar site for a general check-in and found that they have posted one of the songs from the upcoming album, which is due out October 31st. “Death’s Black Train” has got me absolutely beside myself with anticipation for this album now. The song is just terrific. Do yourself a favor: take three minutes for yourself and give it a listen. You don’t even have to download anything, all you need to do is click that link and it’ll kick in. Just do it – I really, honestly think that no matter who you are or how old you are, you’ll find something to like in this song.
