Augustana — “Steal Your Heart” (from Augustana) — Steal Your Heart - Augustana

Who could be more thrilled than me to have this spectacular band back front and center after an excruciating three-year hiatus, and isn’t it queer to discover that Dan Layus and company have clearly been boning up on their Kings of Leon in their time away from the spotlight? (I kid those guys; this new album, the band’s third, is pretty fantastic, and though they have, at least temporarily, ceded their stunningly polished sound in favor of something more organically gritty, they clearly haven’t lost their knack for crafting those exquisitely anthemic hooks.)
