Times New Viking are back

Times New Viking – No Room to Live from Merge Records on Vimeo.

One of my most favorite songs of 2k9 was Times New Viking’s “Move to California.” The rest of the album was mostly a miss for me but that song still hits hard. It’s a beauty. I saw today that the band have a new album coming in April and they are releasing the first song from it. That’s the video above and here is the mp3. I’m not really into it. It sounds like a bad Elliot Smith or that band that Jason Schwartzman is in. Pineapple Express or something like that. Not so good. I like TNV at their fuzziest. This is not that.
