HUSBAND&WIFE

Proud Flesh

2011-05-11

The third full length from this Bloomington based, four man, hard touring, well oiled indie rock machine. Released on the band’s own label, the well respected XRA, this is a much more upbeat follow up to their excellent 2009 release, “Dark Dark Woods”.

A smart, angular record at times, Proud Flesh is also not afraid to do the hard rocking.

The lyrics are mostly introspective and focus on aging and family but they never become trite and are actually quite moving at times.

Recommended Songs – Not Every Bird Can Fly (3), Class War (11)
