Artist Pretty Girls Make Graves
Album Élan Vital
Label Matador Records
Released 4/11/2006
Coming in April '06, The Seattle quintet's follow-up to the universally acclaimed The New Romance, and their first album since the addition of keyboardist Leona Marrs - is by far Pretty Girls Make Graves' most ambitious, multifarious and scorching to date. Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer), Elan Vital provides the band with a bigger, bolder canvas with which to weave their magic; "Pyrite Pedestal", "The Number" and "Parade" ranking amongst their finest songs. The new material, road tested after gigs around the globe with Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand and Death Cab For Cutie, shows a blindingly original American band who are improving with each successive album.
