I think when it comes down to it, Joan of Arc are quite a fine band. Their new record wasn't produced by Steve Albini and it's called "Life Like", is released May 10th on Polyvinyl.
Guitarist and co-Cap'n Jazz co-hort Victor Villarreal joins the trio as full time member, playing off the electronics of the past and putting the band in a van as a regular touring unit. Whoa.
Pre-order "Life Like" here. Hurry: they're only 5 blue cassettes left dude!
