Currently Loving: Kevin Drew's "Darlings"

With a little over a week away until Kevin Drew's sophomore solo release Darlings hits the stands, I was excited to step into the World Wide Web yesterday and find the album is streaming for free on NPR. Darlings, which is the Arts & Crafts co-founder and Broken Social Scene front man's first release since his 2007 solo debut, is a reflective 11-song rock package that clocks in at only around 42 minutes.

Radiating maturity and focus, Darlings is chock full of eclectic numbers that in some ways resemble the vast baroque-rock discography of BSS, but mostly emit a lyrically blunt, ambient flavour so specific to Drew.

Look for Darlings March 18 on Arts & Crafts.
