Arts & Crafts SXSW 07 Sampler @ eMusic

Here's something new at eMusic (you do know about eMusic, don't you?), a seven track sampler of Arts & Crafts bands (A of H,The Dears, Young Galaxy, Amy Millan) and it opens with the most accessible song from Apostle and Hustle's (left) latest record, National Anthem of Nowhere. The album is an improvement over their debut, Folkloric Feel, it has more focus, they've whittled away any, and all, extraneous sounds that were on the debut disc.
And that aforementioned song, "My Sword Hand's Anger", will get your feet moving and blood pumping as it opens and continues with the kick drum's quickened heartbeat. It's a simple song that shines through it's sharp lyrics and tastefully arranged structure... give a listen and then go here to buy the album (you won't regret it).
