Silver Jews - Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea

Silver Jews is an indie rock band from Tennessee fronted by lead singer David Berman and wife Cassie Berman.

Back in the late 80's, Silver Jews is much pretty known as a side project by band members of indie lo-fi band Pavement, due to the majority of members performing under the Silver Jews name comes from the band Pavement, including Stephen Malkmus, Bob Nastanovich and Steve West.

The truth is, Silver Jews started way before Pavement existed, when Berman was leading the show flooding his countrified vocals with his melodic indie rock tunes.

Simply impressive.

Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea is the band's sixth full length album scheduled to release on June 17 under indie label Drag City. You can expect something really tasty and satisfying from this new release.
