Bonus MP3: Air Review -- "Waiting Lessons"
In the meantime, a new song passed along by Taylor and his bandmates as a free download for DC9 readers will have to do. The song, though already included in the band's live sets, won't, surprisingly enough, be included on the band's upcoming EP, Taylor warns -- although, he promises, the song "is similar to the direction the EP is taking, though." And that, my friends, is a very good thing.
Called "Waiting Lessons," the track turns down the token Air Review bombast in exchange for an emphasis on the band's impressive musicianship and flat-out beautiful harmonies -- not altogether unlike the somewhat out-of-place, but similarly pleasing closing track, "Jura," from the band's 2008 debut, Landmarks. Only, uh, with a slightly more Fleet Foxes-esque appeal.
Download the track after the jump. Then catch Air Review on Saturday night in the House of Blues' Cambridge Room, where the band will share a bill with new outfit People on Vacation.
