Ski Lodge have already dropped two shimmering jewels from their upcoming debut album — "Just to Be Like You" and "Boy," both of which received surprisingly grim, psychedelic visual treatments earlier this year — and now the Brooklynites treat us to the entire 11-track LP. Out August 20 via Dovecote Records, Big Heart delivers precise, pogo-ing melodies enhanced by frontman Andrew Marr's soaring croon. Still, despite its Shins-ian sense of adventure, Ski Lodge's first full-length is lined with a bleak sense of humor. To wit, on the aforementioned "Just to Be Like You," Marr offers these (discomfiting) words of comfort: "Don't be scared / It will only be this way forever." Hear that punchline and more by streaming the whole record below. Pre-orders of Big Heart are currently available on iTunes.
