"All the Lost Souls Welcome you to San Francisco" MP3

A bit more audio from a different source. Over at Merge Records they have a posting on their News page that has a nice big picture of what I guess is the new album cover as well as a link to an MP3 of "All the Lost Souls Welcome you to San Francisco". It sounds great, but is rather lacking the "gay men's choir" he always said at gigs it should have. Perhaps the budget didn't stretch that far.

New Album On-Line? *Update*

According to a comment in one of my other posts ...

"The entire new album can be streamed at (for free). This might be a mistake so might not be up for long -- sounds great! Not at all upbeat though like they said--sad, moody, and very AMC."

Had a quick look and couldn't see anything but then again I am not a member. Can anyone else see it?

**Update 1**
The whole album is here.

Back to one track now. :(

Thanks to Michael on the FireFly list for pointing out that Uncut (home to many an Eitzel fan)have a blog about the new American Music Club album. According to this it sounds a bit like California.

Poll Results

I don't know if you noticed but there was a poll running down the left of the screen to see which was your favourite American Music Club album. well, it is over now and I can announce the results. The winners were (in reverse order)

3rd - California with 20% of the votes
2nd - Everclear with 26% of the votes
1st - Mercury with 35% of the votes

It's a bit of a surprise but Mercury was probably one of their most successful.
