The opening track, "Dark Corners," made its debut on Pitchfork earlier today here. Take a listen below:
The murder of a close friend of the band led Sonny Smith to think a lot about death and life after death. Shortly after, a visit to a psychic/medium brought Smith into contact with another friend who had died. This encounter with the afterworld inspired many of the lyrics on Antenna to the Afterworld. And what a strangely entertaining odyssey it turned out to be.
"I come from the planet of dogs / ... / And I walk on your streets / ... / and I can't wait to find / My little place in your weird world," Smith sings on opening track "Dark Corners," as the song's use of synthesizers lends the perfect sonic counterpart to the science fiction narrative.

If you're not falling over with excitement yet (like me), then check out the first single "Invisible Friend," which just debuted on PitchforkHERE.
One Kiss Ends It All is the first proper full-length album since 2007's Fill Up The Room, and Fred Thomas and co. are picking back up right where they left off. With more sophisticated arrangements and melodies more direct and engaging than anything the band has ever done, the album feels like re-telling the details of a dream minutes after waking. Something new colliding with something that shouldn't make sense in a beautifully strange collage. And always more details hidden in the corners.
