Prepping for their upcoming sophomore LP, Now or Heaven (and supporting Fall tour), The Broken West shot us the second MP3 off the album to preview here on AD. The album itself is a clear maturation of the golden-coast pop sound of the group’s 2005 self-released EP and subsequent Merge Records debut, I Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On. Moodier and more introspective, Now Or Heaven easily falls in line with its processors while spotlighting a growing degree of influences in terms of both the songwriting and instrumentation. See this band live.
