New Mekons tune!

I know, I know, it's a bit like seeing that aunt and uncle you don't really dig so much but are obligated to visit every so often, but you absolutely owe it to yourself to wander on over to Pitchfork and avail yourself of their free teaser MP3 from the forthcoming Mekons album, Ancient and Modern, due in September.

This song - which I saw them preview a work-in-progress version of two years ago at the Mercury Lounge - is an absolute stormer, surprisingly Mekons Rock 'n' Roll-era sounding given the folkier leanings of their also-excellent recent work.  I'm sure that the album will be all over the map, as is the Mekons' wont and rare talent, but I've gotta admit: a whole album, or at least most of one, that sounds like this would be highly excellent.

Direct link right here, so you don't really have to spend all that much time with Aunt and Uncle Pitchfork.  You're welcome.
