mp3 Cold War Kids – “Minimum Day” & “Minimum Mistake”

To announce the departing of long time band member Jonnie Russell due to his desire to return to school the band has released 2 new tracks and 2 videos to introduce their new guitarist former Modest Mouse and Murder City Devil’s guitarist Dann Gallucci. But really we should call it 1 1/2 new tracks since “Minimum Mistake” is more of a reprise for “Minimum Day”. Both videos feature the free-form dancing of Julia Fenton with small glimpses of the new line up.

The songs themselves are a little sub par for the band and are missing the southern rock blues with gruff and rafter rising vocals. I’m hoping that this is not a new direction but acts more as a “hey things have changed a bit so here’s something to chew on for a little while” kind of thing. The band has announced that they are currently recording their follow up album the 2011′s stunning Mine Is Yours with Dann acting as guitarist and producer.
