Published Aug 13, 2010After three years of relative silence, Toronto quintet Small Sins have announced that they will release their third studio full-length this September, courtesy of the band's own label, Small Sins Music.
The band's first LP since 2007's Mood Swings is titled Pot Calls Kettle Black, and will hit stores September 28 via distribution from Toronto indie giants Arts & Crafts. The album was recorded in Chicago, and was done with Tortoise/Sea and Cake member/producer John McEntire, who produced Small Sins' previous effort.
The album, according to the band's press release, is "at turns sultry, slinky and haunting" and "marries the intimacy of Small Sins' first album with the experimentation of Mood Swings."
The band - Thom D'Arcy, Brent Follett, Kevin Hilliard, Steve Krecklo, Jaan Kittask and Todor Kobakov - have made Pot Calls Kettle Black's first single and title track available for download here. The song, along with "Deja Vu" (featuring K-os), can also be streamed at the band's MySpace.
No tracklist was given for the album, but it will feature these tracks (but not necessarily in this order): "Where There's Gold," "Tonight," "Till I Go Home," "Everything You Need," "Deja Vu," "Pot Calls Kettle Black" and "You Will Lie."
