#180 The Provincial Archive – Common Cards

There’s a whole lot of Elliott Smith to the Provincial Archive, and that is no bad thing at all. The Canadian four-piece are poised to make a splash on this side of the Atlantic with a single in ‘Common Cards’ that broods and builds and ultimately would not sound too out of place on XO or Figure 8. They’ve also made it available as a free download from their website, which is jolly decent of them.
