Spirit of the Beehive are releasing a new album, Hypnic Jerks, on September 14 via Tiny Engines (pre-order), and we’re premiering the new song “d​.​o​.​u​.​b​.​l​.​e​.​u​.​r​.​o​.​n​.​g.” along with its video. Like past SOTB stuff, the song has hints of music you’re familiar with, but the band brings those sounds together in a way that feels new. There’s some lo-fi bedroom pop, some post-rock, some Beatlesque psychedelia, and more in this hazy, atmospheric song, and it’s good stuff. Check it out, along with previous single “can i receive the contract?”, below.

As mentioned, Spirit of the Beehive are touring with post-hardcore-ish indie rockers Pile (good double bill), including Brooklyn shows on 10/19 & 10/20 at Saint Vitus (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Speaking of, Pile are releasing an odds and ends compilation called Odds and Ends on September 7 via Exploding In Sound, and you can stream “Cup” from that below.
