Neva Dinova's upcoming album - "You May Already Be Dreaming"

I was just checking one of my favorite record labels (Saddle Creek) today to see if the announced Neva Dinova album had been setup for pre-order yet, and it had..with a sampler track!

Neva Dinova is one of my favorite alt country/rock bands. I heard about them after becoming obsessed with the One jug of wine, Two Vessels split they did with Bright Eyes (one of my favorite EP's of all time). Jake Bellows has an amazing voice and some great lyrics to back it up. I'm super exited for this new release entitled "You may already be dreaming" (coming out April 8th!)

Here is the blurb from the website..and a link to the sample track "Clouds" (which I won't be playing on the show because its bitrate is too low..sadface)

Bellows began composing songs for You May Already Be Dreaming two years ago, but he and the band (including Good Life drummer Roger Lewis) were fated to overcome a number of obstacles before the recording process would even begin. First, Bellows realized that he wanted to re-work a number of song ideas on his own following that arduous but exciting process, the band experienced a flood that destroyed portions of their equipment. If that wasn't enough, Bellows unfortunately found himself in a self-described 'barroom tussle' that resulted in the complete and tragic blowout of his left eardrum. Fortunately, he and his ear recovered fully, and Neva Dinova was able to resume recording.

From the spacious guitar washes of "A Man and His Dream" to the sweeping, dusty strength of "Clouds", this is the band's most fluid and realized effort to date. You May Already Be Dreaming was self-recorded in the corner of a friend's warehouse space in Omaha, NE, and later mixed with the help of Ian Aiello at Presto!, Mike Mogis' recording studio, in the fall of 2007.
