Slaughter Beach, Dog debuts new album <i>Birdie</i> in full Jessica Flynn

Just two weeks after Modern Baseball played three very special sold-out shows at home in Philadelphia, co-frontman Jake Ewald is getting ready to drop a new full-length album as Slaughter Beach, Dog. Jake's always been a thoughtful songwriter, and the neurotic folk of Birdie is a good reminder of his particular gifts. In a style that recalls long-winded storytellers like Conor Oberst and Stuart Murdoch, Jake sings of self-deprecating slackers and insecure daydreamers, of Goodwill parking lots and really shitty beer. His detail-oriented universe is sad but rarely pessimistic. For 10 songs, it feels nice to get lost in there. Listen in full below.

Birdie is out October 27 on Lame-O Records.
