COLLECTED WORKS The new Overtones.

When drummer Tony McNaboe delivered the burned copy of Rustic Overtones’ new full-length album, New Way Out, he tucked it inside the packaging of the re-released and re-mastered Long Division, the band’s first proper album, complete with horn section and keyboardist Spencer Albee. It’s fitting, as New Way Out is the first proper album by Overtones 2.0, now without Albee (or any full-time keyboard player at all) and seemingly with a brand-new string section, present on each of the new album’s 13 tracks.
