As mentioned a few weeks ago, Overcasters have put the finishing touches on their new album, The Whole Sea is Raging, recorded in May with Rick Parker, which they're preparing to introduce it to us at the Gathering of Clouds, a three-day mini-festival and release party slated to take place at their warehouse. Although the album isn't due for release for another month still, the outfit just posted a stream of "A Jagular," a track from the new record, on its ReverbNation page. We've had the chance to hear the whole platter, and let's just say the careening guitars driving Kurt Ottaway's trademark croon on "A Jagular" is a tantalizing teaser of what's to come.
