the essex green - "don't know why (you stay)" (from the cannibal sea lp, released march 21, available for preorder here.)

the essex green here remind me, not for the first time, of the the new pornographers. on "don't know why (you stay)," the reference point is "bleeding heart show" from twin cinema. the sense of community is missing, not to mention the drumming, but "don't know why" also features a magnificent group harmony chorus, and yet it is a call to arms in its own right. no, rather, it's a call for hands to roll down windows and let the wind blow back your hair.
