Young Jesus have announced a followup to 2018's very good The Whole Thing Is Just There. It's called Welcome to Conceptual Beach and it comes out August 14 via Saddle Creek (pre-order).

Young Jesus have a built a reputation for long, stretched-out, jammy indie rock songs, but first single "Root and Crown" is a concise, two minute and 52 second indie folk song, and John Rossiter's harmony-backed vocals sound sweeter than ever. It almost reminds me a little of Beirut, but still done in a way that's uniquely Young Jesus. Listen below.
