Kurosky's led a very interesting path, having been an indie-rock darling of sorts, while also working in the digital-music world. I have friends who used to work with him at one (or maybe two?) digital start-ups here in San Francisco. I believe he's now relocated to Portland. It was last year that I discovered that The Coast Is Never Clear had a limited vinyl release. Where did I send a check? Right to Miles.
I'm only on song three right now, but this really sounds like a continuation of Beulah, and in a good way. It sounds fresh, but still awash in that sprawling, pop beauty.
It's good to have Miles back.
