New Music : Eleventh Dream Day

Here’s some serious sonic tenderoni for your Thursday morning. As you may or may not be aware, our friends at Thrill Jockey recently released Eleventh Dream Day’s 10th record, a dazzling little slab called Riot Now! No shock here that Riot Now! contains a heapin’ helpin’ of urgent college radio pop-noise elegance from the Chi-based quartet, perhaps their most white-knuckled offering since 1988’s Prairie School Freakout, however, this may be the first must-own of the year (the second being The Feelies’ Here Before) for those of you who refuse to toss out (or wash) that Slint t-shirt you so treasure.

But wait, it gets better. In order to remind us that things are still up and running smoothly at Eleventh Dream Day, Inc., the band has recorded two and leaked juicy covers from two of my all-time faves: Eno and Joy Division. No word on where or when these will ever see official light of day, but we’re more than happy to share with the group.
