I just saw today via Seattle’s coolest web site, Three Imaginary Girls, that the new Figurines record will be getting released stateside on 11 September, only a month after its 13 August release in Denmark. When The Deer Wore Blue will be their third album and their second for the Seattle based The Control Group. I wonder if TCG has any intention of putting out their hard to find first record, Shake a Mountain? Deer Wore Blue was recorded in Sweden with Jeremy Lemos. I was (and still am) a huge fan of their previous record, Skeletons, so I have great expectations for the new record.
The first single, Hey Girl has been up on their myspace page for a few weeks, and is waiting for you to hear it. It’s more Danish goodness with a chugging rhythm, warbly guitar and Christian Hjelm sounding like he was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. If you are anti-myspace and since there doesn’t seem to be an mp3 floating around of Hey Girl, you can hear this cool remix of Silver Ponds by Ben Watt (ETBTG) right here.
