The band has made a song from each available to listen to. "Sea of Clouds" is from Vol. 1, and it's an acoustic folk epic from the band, exactly the kind of thing we've come to expect and love. From Vol. 2 comes "It's a Whale," and while it's not quite a Nirvana level out of control rocker, it's definitely some of the harder music we've heard from Deer Tick. Both releases are giving me fantasies of "An Evening with Deer Tick" style tour, with the band playing an acoustic set, and then coming back for a harder, plugged in set later in the night.
You can listen to the nautically titled "Sea of Clouds" and "It's a Whale" below. Deer Tick Vol 1. and Deer Tick Vol. 2 will be released on September 15 on Partisan Records. Right now you can pre-order the album in various bundles (including attending a Pawtucket Red Sox game with the band) via PledgeMusic. For more on Deer Tick, check out their website.
