I really love Beyonce's new album. A lot. I've been playing it non-stop since its release, which is something I always do with new music I love. It usually takes another new album to allow me to give the other a break. In this case, I'm making space for Just a Band's 2012 release, Sorry for the Delay. I came across an article about this artists collective on the New York Times website, which talks about the work they're doing with video, design, photography, and of course music. While working on my own projects I began playing Sorry for the Delay and became a fan instantly. Their sound is wonderful. I especially love this song, "Probably for Lovers."
