Things don’t appear to be slowing down for Matador after a 2009 that saw a steady stream of top notch releases. Already this week we got a new mp3 from the forthcoming Ted Leo & The Pharmacists album, The Brutalist Bricks. Now comes one from the upcoming Shearwater album, The Golden Archipelago. “Castaways” is our first glimpse into the new record, and from the sounds of it Jonathon Meiburg's unique ability to craft pristine, achingly beautiful mini-epics hasn't wavered since he did it 10 times over on 2008’s Rook. Look for The Golden Archipelago on February 23 and a slightly higher quality 256 kbps mp3 (in Zip format) right now at the Matablog.
