Album Stream + Tour Dates : The Elected : Bury Me In My Rings

Rumor has it that at this time last year, Blake Sennett had effectively walked away from the music biz, no small feat for a man who anchored Rilo Kiley as well as fronted his own well-received pop project, The Elected. But, here was Sennett, writing and directing a short film while palling around town with a rescue dog known only as “The Baby.”

Enter Sennett’s pal, Jason Cupp, or as he is known in some circles, that guy who mixed The Elected’s previous record, Sun, Sun, Sun way back in 2006. The world may never know what Cupp had to do to get Sennett back in the studio, but ultimately those sessions would become Bury Me In My Rings (get it from Vagrant Records on May 17th), the most ambitious and accomplished Elected platter to date. Interestingly, Sennett was so re-energized by the music-making process, he actually played all instruments on the record before reconsidering and inviting buddies Mike Bloom and Bright Eyes’ Mike Mogis to lend a hand.

But you’ve been good lately. Really good. And really good boys and girls shouldn’t have to wait another week to hear Bury Me In My Rings.

    Yeah, second to the song titles being wrong. I’m terribly ocd, so it makes this almost unlistenable.
