Small Black unveils new song “Back At Belle’s” — listen

Brooklyn outfit deal with loss on its forthcoming third LP, Best Blues


Best Blues is the forthcoming album from Small Black, slated to drop on October 16th via Jagjaguwar. An LP reflecting on loss and memories, it serves as the Brooklyn outfit’s third overall following 2013’s Limits of Desire.

Already we’ve previewed the record with lead single “Boys Life” and last month’s “No One Wants It to Happen to You”. Today, Small Black returns with “Back at Belle’s”, a buzzy, skittering number, and likely one of the most noise-addled cuts to date. Even so, Josh Kolenik’s vocals — though sometimes lost in all the hubbub — manage to be a calming presence. Listen in below.
