Pinegrove Release New Album

MeridianSo you first years probably haven’t heard of Pinegrove, but basically, they’re a really awesome band comprised of Evan Hall and Nandi Plunkett (both class of ’11), and they just released a new album.  It’s really good.

Sometimes plodding along with heavy, distorted, alt-rock footsteps, sometimes dancing around aching harmonies with skittering drums and nimble guitar work and occasionally letting loose with cathartic outbursts of emotion, Meridian may sound familiar to old Pinegrove fans: some older tunes have been slightly reworked (“Mather Knoll” has some new reggae trappings), but the old favorites are still strong (to the delight of those among us who live for belting “I AGREE WITH YOUR IDEAS BUT NOT YOUR TACTICS” at the top of our lungs).

You can stream and download the album (for whatever price you like) after the jump.

Here’s their old tape, too, if you’re interested:

And check out this teaser video for Meridian by David Masnato (also ’11):

Finally, get real pumped for their show at the Horn with Glen Echo on April 20 … it’s pretty much guaranteed to be awesome.
