The Essex Green - Don't Know Why (You Stay)

Here's a band that may interest fans of The Apples In Stereo, Of Montreal, The Shins and 60's pop and psychadelia in general. (Yes, apparently they are a part of the nebulous Elephant 6 Collective, so I suppose that explains the connection.) The Essex Green have a new album out on Merge Records next month called Cannibal Sea, and believe me when I say they look really sharp in peacoats. I'm not all that familiar with their previous 2 and a half records but this song has definitely got my interest piqued. Soaring vocal harmonies and crisp 60's production makes for some wonderful repeat listening... can't wait to hear more from this album.
