Bowerbirds do "Hymns for a Dark Horse," one more time

Dead Oceans will issue an expanded edition of the highly touted Bowerbirds release, Hymns for a Dark Horse. The new version will also have several bonus tracks, as well as a release on vinyl for the first time. There will also be a new album further down the line, as well as a tour with Phosporescent leading up to SXSW. This is excellent stuff here folks, if you haven’t heard it before. Sort of sea shanty, meets log cabin folk, with heavy sways of drama throughout this instant classic of a record.
