I am sufficiently teased. Can't wait to hear the full album now. You might have already heard the single "Summertime," which they released last year. Great track, and the perfect way to kick off the summer. Anyway, download the free Home:Word Sampler here. And for those of you in NYC...

Come out and celebrate the album release with Magnetic North and Taiyo Na, with a special live performance from Blue Scholars. You can also party with the good people of Hyphen, who will be celebrating the release of Issue #20. Hell yeah. It's all happening Friday, June 4 at The Delancey. Here are some more details:
