New Mission of Burma: "1, 2, 3, Partyy" (mp3)

Fresh off their performance at East River State Park in Williamsburg (with Fucked Up!), Boston post-punk legends Mission of Burma announced (or, rather, their label, Matador, announced for them) today that they'll release a new album this fall. Entitled The Sound, The Speed, The Light, it's their third post-reunion release. Matador describes it as "is a departure from the pinned-needles roar of 2006’s The Obliterati. The new album sounds far more spacious and dynamic. It is more or less divided into 4 sets or suites of 3 songs. Each suite explores a set of moods or colors, across the usual dizzying array of lyrical topics, from alcoholism to fleshly concerns." All we've heard so far is the first song, "1, 2, 3, Partyy," which just sounds like Mission of Burma to us, though they do sound slightly more restrained than usual. Listen for yourself below and get excited.
