DOWNLOAD: Annuals - Brother (MP3)

"File this under the 'stuff what comes out in October' category if you will, but word on the street is that Pitchfork is getting the jump on this band tomorrow, which means we're going to throw it out there today." [Postcore's Preemptive strike]

"Ace Fu Records is blowin' up, what with getting their claws into Man Man, blog faves DeVotchka, and Books-alikes Tunng. But if their forthcoming Be He Me album lives up to what this track (Brother) promises, North Carolina-based Annuals might be the label's best find yet." [Pitchfork]

"The Raleigh, NC-based six-piece played two shows in New York City last weekend that included a supporting slot for Cold War Kids and Sound Team at The Mercury Lounge (July 29) and the other at Pianos with Bishop Allen." [Crackers United]
