A sneak peek at Ross Etherton and the Chariots of Judah's forthcoming album, due later this year

Ross Etherton and the Chariots of Judah are in the midst of recording a brand-new record at Trevor Morris's studio, the Furnace Room (which is also working on new records by the Skeleton Show, Snake Mountain and Hooper, among others), and we got our hands on an unmixed demo of a track from the new album.

The song, "Best Dress," is from the band's forthcoming and still-to-be-titled full-length, due out later this year. It's a nice primer to the band's rock/country hybrid approach, a trademark of the Denver scene partially based on a lot of the work from the bandmembers here.

While the song is clearly still a rough demo mix, you can still see where things are heading with the upcoming release, and we've got a feeling it's going to end up sounding a bit bigger by the end of it. The Chariots of Judah have always shone most when keeping things stripped down but still upbeat, but that doesn't mean we're not a bit curious to see where this one ends up.
