Gomez: A New Tide

The 6th studio album from Gomez, a group with 4 songwriters and 3 lead singers, making their albums a mix of styles and sounds from blues, rock, psychedelia, folk and various experiments.  This is my first Gomez album, I bought it on the strength of Airsteam Driver after seeing them perform it on a late show, and while there's nothing else on the album like Airstream, I really enjoy the contrasting styles and varying vocalist, and plan to get more of their releases.
From Dave Matthews' ATO label, the vinyl comes with the full CD, in a single jacket with printed sleeve.

@metacritic: 8.1 user score
