MuzikDizcovery Exclusive: Places To Hide - "Ecotone" Stream

We at Muzik Dizcovery are pleased to present an exclusive premier of “Ecotone,” the final track off of Atlanta band Places to Hide’s new record Almost Nothing. Over a hyperkinetic (not to mention tied-up-tight) whirlwind of slick melody and barchord slashing, vocalist Kyle Swick narrates with surprising swagger and wit the story of dreary a Sunday afternoon sucked so clean of energy and motion it could only be represented sonically at bullet train speeds. Swick’s delivery is cut fantastically with a kind of stage-actor’s malaise — we feel his pain, but it doesn’t feel like he’s complaining. Then, after a subtle slow build you’ll hardly notice, somebody steps on the fuzz pedal and sends the song pulsing with temple-to-temple punch-in-the-gut fuzz, and boy does it get me every time. Hello Husker Du? The song is a hit. Well, I guess not really until you guys have heard it, so get listening! Check it out below. If you dig the track, make sure to see the band on tour (dates after the jump) or order the album on LP (soon to be released on Irrelevant Recordings) or CD (through Out of This Records).
