If you've caught the Abramson Singers play in the last little while, you may have copped this from Leah directly (and she still has some CDs to sell at shows, I think), but if not, it's out today on iTunes, Zunior, and via White Whale (where it's only $5).
I haven't seen Leah play solo or with a band in ages, and since I mostly stick to live stuff here, I don't really mention her all that often, but I still play her last record, Bedroom/City, at least once a week, and I'm pretty sure the story's going to be the same with this one.
You can check out five songs from the album (plus two from Leah's last one) on her Myspace.
