Come June 19th, those of us who can’t get enough of indie rockers Silver Jews will have something to celebrate. No, it’s not a new album but it’s close. Early Times is a collection that compiles both the Dime Map of the Reef and The Arizona Record albums. Granted they’ve both been released for going on 20 years but they’ve been out of print for so long, it’s a wonder you’ve even heard of them. You have, right? If not, here’s your chance. Just don’t tell your friends that this is the first time you’ve heard these songs.
Listen to track “Secret Knowledge of Back Roads” here. You’re welcome.
