New These United States: "I Want You To Keep Everything"

Apparently 18 months is enough time for a band needs to write and record three albums. Following their successful debut and rollicking follow-up, DC-area collective These United States are set to return with Everything Touches Everything on September 1st. The band and its aptly-titled label United Interests are currently offering up the opening track, "I Want You To Keep Everything," as a free download. Muted and muffled guitar licks matched with a blazing steel string and feverish percussion don't signal a change away from the group's jangly and wordy roots-rock, but rather a bigger and more effective platform for it.
