The Farewell Drifters have been called “the best of what’s next” by Paste Magazine and said to possess an “exuberant musical intelligence” by No Depression. On their Compass Records debut, Tomorrow Forever (due Jan 28), the band takes another musical leap forward solidifying their place among the important bands emerging in the wake of the neo-folk path blazed by the Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes. The new album was produced by pop-roots specialist Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones, the Apache Relay, Glen Philips) and showcases the Drifters’ Brian Wilson-esque pop sensibility, crystalline harmonies and folk foundations alongside gutsy electric guitar and orchestral-style drums. Download the three-song sampler “In the Modern Age” to get the first track from Tomorrow Forever, an exclusive cover of “Ageless Beauty” by Canadian indie-rockers Stars, and a harmony-heavy acoustic song from their 2011 album, Echo Boom.
