Waste not fresh Tears over old griefs

The Durham/Chapel Hill North Carolina troupe The Prayers and Tears of Arthur Digby Sellers make unassuming, literate acoustic-y music that hits an achey-breaky sweet spot, somewhere in the territory mined by the Mountain Goats, Matt Pond PA, Great Lake Swimmers, etc. But there's something very quiet and modest about the way they do it that makes it spezial.

Buy their latest, "The Mother of Love Emulates the Shapes of Cynthia," here.

Maybe strike the earlier remark about modesty--the band clearly employ a certain magniloquent m.o. that hints at big dreams.
