Album Stream: !!! - Strange Weather, Isn't It?

All four !!! albums have their own standout moments ("Feel Good Hit of the Fall," "Hello? Is This Thing On?" and "Must Be The Moon," respectively) and Strange Weather is no exception. The heavy-handed-yet-insanely-funky "Even Judas Gave Jesus a Kiss" is one of the strongest tracks amid a strong Strange Weather lineup. The song's funk-drenched charm is bolstered by its profoundly ambitious lyrics about The Bible, closing ones fists and the relationship between Jesus and Judas.

For those fans of !!!, Strange Weather will seem like a calculated step forward for the band -- for those uninitiated, the album will come across as the perfect late-summer offering. 

Strange Weather, Isn't It will be released 8/24 via Warp. !!! plays The Clubhouse Sunday, September 5.
