Gladly going down with the Damnwells ship

This song popped into my inbox recently from lead Damnwell Alex Dezen, and maybe it's just the cold grey skies that are causing me to post two melancholy tunes in one day, but I'm feeling this one.

Alex makes it sound easy the way he crafts these humble aching love songs with his acoustic guitar, and puts his soul behind it. The Damnwells will be back in the studio come February, with Alex saying "it's going to be the record we should have made long ago." I don't know what that sounds like, but I'm glad to hear that there's more music forthcoming from this earnest, shining talent - the two years since Air Stereo already seem interminable 'round these parts.

Down With The Ship - The Damnwells

Thanks for championing the Damnwells so much; it's through your blog I found their music and (as I scrape together change to purchase Air Stereo) have been happily gathering mp3s to sate my appetite. Excellent, excellent stuff.

Wow. Absolutely amazing, these guys are. Thanks so much for the album news, I hadn't heard that reported anywhere else. I wonder who the lineup will be for this album?
