Fruit Bats – Ruminant Band

MP3: Fruit Bats – The Ruminant Band from The Ruminant Band, due August 4 on Sub Pop.

It starts out sounding like Glen Campbell‘s version of “Southern Nights” and migrates into an Allman Brothers song! Awesome.

Also: Fruit Bats – “My Unusual Friend”

Fruit Bats: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki, MySpace.
