About ten years ago Dave Berman buried Silver Jews with a pretty remarkable letter, mostly ripping his dad to pieces. I don't think he's released or performed any music since then, but now he's making a comeback with a new band called Purple Mountains. The first single is not too far away from the last Silver Jews album, and I get some Destroyer/Dan Bejar vibes as well. I absolutely love SIlver Jews, and while this at first listen isn't as thrilling as say Bright Flight, American Water or Tanglewood Numbers, it's really nice to hear Berman's voice again.

Wow, nice ... listened this afternoon and it's been in my head all day. (As kids in Portland we laughed at East Coasters who rhymed Oregon with "gone," but I love the line "it's not the icy bike-chain rain of Portland Oregon.") Curious to hear the album.
