The Fiery Furnaces‘ upcoming album, Widow City, has leaked. After listening to it yesterday as I drove through western Maryland at 4 a.m. (don’t ask), the album feels like a return to form of sorts. The songs are so strong. I wonder if hipsters will ever forgive the brother-sister act for their grandma record, their love for backwards guitars, and carnival keyboards.

Help me answer this question. Listen to “Navy Nurse” off the new record and give us your analysis. You can find one blogger playing solid defense here.
