The Posies since I first heard the exquisite power pop of Frosting on the Beater. The past year has been rough with the passing of both drummer Darius Minwalla and bassist Joe Skyward. They've got a new album called Solid States that just came out last week. They say it's a conscious effort to make a different Posies record.
Check out some tunes. There's the powerfully melodic "Squirrel vs Snake", the low key "Unlikely Places", and the delicate "Radiance".
