We’ve come to know Wymond Miles over the years as the voice and leader of prolific San Francisco psych-rockers The Fresh and Onlys, but when Miles released his debut solo EP Earth Has Doors earlier this year it felt like we were truly getting to know him for the first time, and those 4 songs offered a fleeting glimpse into an interesting man’s soul.
Now that glimpse can be extended when Miles releases Under the Pale Moon through Sacred Bones on June 12th.
Under the Pale Moon came together relatively quickly when Miles sat down to write it last winter and he believes that he has created something “carnal.” The whole album is described as raw and stripped down. You can get a taste of this sound by listening to “Pale Moon” below. Beneath that are the album’s cover and track list.
Under the Pale Moon track list:
01. Strange Desire
02. Pale Moon
03. Singing the Ending
04. Run Like the Hunted
05. Youth’s Lonely Wilderness
06. The Thirst
07. You and I Are of the Night
08. Lazarus Rising
10. Trapdoors and Ladders
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
