West of Rome

West of Rome's new EP, "School and Books and Trains and Leaving" is quite a departure from the band's previous albums. Recorded in a mere 24 hours, the 7-song disc is a stripped down and raw document, direct, loud and intimate all at the same time. Recorded in marvelous analog "School and Books and Trains and Leaving" is the band's second release on the Madison label Slothtrop Music.
