After several years keeping busy playing with both Vetiver and The Shins, Eric D. Johnson has returned to craft a brand new Fruit Bats album, The Ruminant Band, on Sub Pop Records. Johnson recently promised that “We are going to choogle for you.” And choogle they do! The album is chock full of the kind of music that will lift your head and take notice to the sweet sounds abound. Some might even liken it to a religious experience. But don’t take our word for it, rather see the video proof!
