Being that their 2009 release “Mean Everything To Nothing” was my favorite
album of that year, surely you can understand how excited I am about this
new opus.

Group leader/singer-songwriter Andy Hull, who at 23, already has quite the
catalog of incredible music credited to him, be it his solo folk project
Right Away, Great Captain or last year’s collaboration with Kevin Devine
and the rest of the TMO crew on the side project Bad Books.

He’s also in charge of his own record label Favorite Gentlemen Recordings
where all these fine releases have sprung forth. Not only is he an inspiration to musicians, he’s also an inspiration to business people.

The story behind this new release is that it’s about Andy’s life,  his marriage
and the struggles he and his wife had in that first year of wedded bliss and
conversations between him, his wife and the good lord above.

My guess is we’re in for some really deep, emotional shit set to some killer
guitar riffs only these fine Southerners know how to crank out.

You can find out for yourself. They’ve just released a stream of the entire
for you to enjoy before it’s official release on May 10th.

They’re making it a fun challenge to get to that listen. Visit their official

From Alternative Press, a behind the scenes look on the
making of “Simple Math”:

feeling that I will never see them play my hometown which blows.
