San Diego's the Black Heart Procession will release their new LP, The Spell, May 9th on Touch & Go Records. I've only been able to give it a cursory listen thus far, but I seem to be liking it less than their "breakthrough" 2002 effort, Amore del Tropico. Gone, for now, are the salsa accents that lightened the mood (slightly) on that disc. In place, as always, are the BHP's dark, moody soundscapes and Pall A. Jenkins' distinctive, through-a-glass-darkly crooning - wedged in some desolate neverland between Lambchop's Kurt Wagner and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne.

From the LP The Spell, 2006 >>>

[MP3] "The Letter"

From the LP Amore del Tropico, 2002 >>>

I've pleased, but mildly diappointed that this has been posted. This is my favorite band, and I sincerely hope that people buy this record when it is out...PLEASE support this band and dont contend yourself with a few free downloads...BHP deserve support.
