California Wives

Chicago new-wave quartet California Wives has offered an early Labor Day weekend listen of its new full length debut, Art History. The album is out next week on Vagrant, a few weeks before the band embarks on a national tour with Stars and Diamond Rings. I’ve been listening to this album all week and it’s awesome! Not sure the last time I actually loved something this much from Vagrant.

Art History’s opening track ‘Blood Red Youth’ was recently premiered at RollingStone.com, who hailed it “a driving guitar-and-synth anthem with a swelling chorus.”

Their first single ‘Purple,’ was premiered last month with Paste, and its forthcoming video will be released as a commercial on September 6 during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
