Legendary alt-rockers Silver Jews unfortunately decided to call it quits in 2009, not long after releasing their sixth and final studio album Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea. Fortunately for Silver Jews fans that might have been craving a new release to get their hands on, there is something to look forward to from the band in the near future.
Early Times harks right back to the early days of Silver Jews when Stephen Malkmus and Bob Nastanovich were still heavily involved. The tracks included are taken from their original 7″ EP Dime Map Of The Reef and another 12″ EP entitled The Arizona Record.
Drag City will release Silver Jews’ Early Times on June 19th. The track list is below.

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.
