It's been two years since husband and wife duo Shovels and Rope released O' Be Joyful. Their followup record, Swimmin' Time, is due next Tuesday, August 26th. Expect more complimentary (read: not-over-the-top) production, and a warmly welcomed maturing sound out of this album that will solidify that this band is not going anywhere but forward. Hear the entire record, days before its release, on NPR Music's First Listen series, here.
