Two months ago, we were gifted with the first sounds from The Voluntary Butler Scheme forthcoming third album A Million Ways to Make Gold in "Brain Freeze" and in the wintry second single "Quinzhee (Building Us A House Out of Snow)", Rob Jones appears to be returning to form; stitching back up the visible seams of The Grandad Galaxy and recalling the retropop stylings of After Breakfast, Dinner, Tea. In fact he's taking the brass-laden sounds that composed both albums best tracks and seems to be making them a permanent addition. Not a bad addition in fact as "Quinzhee" and b-side "That's How I Got to Memphis" ( a Tom T. Hall cover) are filled with buoyant horns as well as Jones' impressive multi-instrumentalism.
Get a listen to the latest single "Quinzhee" and b-side "How I Got to Memphis" here.
Also you can order a signed 7" copy of the single here if you're so inclined. The Voluntary Butler Scheme's A Million Ways to Make Gold will be out March 2013.
