Morgantown, WV natives Librarians released a stunner of an album with Present Passed way back in March, and even found their song “Candy Season” near the top of speed of the Pittsburgh sound’s Top 20 Steel City Tracks of 2009 (due to the fact I picked up their album at a show in late December). The group is currently taking a small hiatus from touring but should be up and running by the fall. In the meantime, here’s another highlight from Present Passed “Hard To Unwind, which pretty much cements Librarians as the rust belt’s Animal Collective. Spacey keyboard lines, crunching synth samples and tribal drum beat swirl into an indie-psychedellic fury as Ryan Hizer’s coolly harmonic vocals keep the track from evaporating. Be sure to keep an eye out for these guys on their next tour through Pittsburgh.
