When the Somerville-based Eternals released the Steely Dandy single “Raised by Wolves” earlier this year, I went from loving the song to champing at the bit (it is CHAMPING, NOT CHOMPING) for their upcoming LP.
Well, good news. It’s no longer upcoming and I am no longer champing. “Isn’t That Anyone” is here and it is terrific. The album is sonically more polished than their outstanding 2014 self-titled release, and the songwriting is every bit as good. Personal favorites include “Raised By Wolves,” “Out of Context,” “Bar Room Dancing,” “Affirmation I,” “Affirmation II” and the three songs I didn’t just name. Can’t recommend enough.
Once you’ve become fully obsessed, you’ll be able to catch them live this weekend. They’re playing an album release show Saturday night at Great Scott.
