Doves - Kingdom of Rust
Doves are band that certainly don't need any help from this little blog, but the bands long awaited new album is finally out and I've kept my silence on this one long enough. Kingdom of Rust is proving to have been worth the wait and then some. But before I get into the album any further I have to rat myself out. On April 7th when this album was released it didn't get the attention that it deserved as it sat under new releases from The Thermals, Bob Mould, Telekenesis, and the new Superchunk EP. However now that I've had the chance to give Kingdom of Rust my undivided attention I am more than a little taken by it. From the one, two punch that is Jetstream, and the albums tittle track to the outstanding closer Lifelines, Doves have delivered an album that rivals there best work and proves that sometimes it takes four years to make an album as good as Kingdom of Rust.
Doves will play The House of Blues on June 7th.
