The Dry Spells - "Batwood"

Antenna Farm Records has announced an August 11th release date for Too Soon For Flowers, the debut full length from San Francisco's The Dry Spells. The folk-rock band formed at Bard College, and became inspired to write their first song about a local tragedy where a nine-year-old girl was accidentally killed by a hunter while she was out collecting leaves. After graduating, the band moved to San Francisco and reconnected with Bard alumnus Ezra Feinberg, joining his band Citay.
