Full play of Seattle psychedelic rock band's self-titled second album

Seattle's Rose Windows are set to release their self-titled second album early next month, and we've kindly been given a full stream. With production supremo and Master Musicians Of Bukkake man Randall Dunn taking up desk duties, the band recorded the follow-up to their 2013 debut The Sun Dogs in Bogalusa, Louisiana, with the Deep South's delta blues tradition feeding into the album. It moves from opener 'Bodhi Song', which finds the band concerning themselves with Buddhist enlightenment, shifting through 'Glory Glory', where evocative flute lines collide with fuzzy, gnarled bass, and the captivating groove of 'Strip Mall Babylon', before closing with a two-part coda, the cathartic, exquisite 'A Pleasure To Burn' and 'Hirami'.

Get hold of the album from Sub Pop when it hits shelves on May 4, but for the time being, give it a play above.
