New Aloha – “Brace Your Face”

I’ve loved Aloha for years (Here Comes Everyone was one of Stereogum’s Top Catorce of 2004). The forthcoming Some Echoes is another winner, equal parts prog and post-rock. It’s the band’s second album with T.J. Lipple, whose marimba has become a key ingredient of the Aloha sound. I’m sure I’ll have a different favorite tune off Echoes tomorrow (there are even some sweet ballads), so for now probably best to treat you to its kick-ass intro.
