Spiral Stairs Ascends Again

Matador just announced 'The Real Feel' will be released Oct. 20. Spiral Stairs, aka Scott Kannberg, has spent quite a bit of time Down Under, and it sounds like it on the first leaked song.

Spiral Stairs - Maltese Terrier (mp3)

Although he is not using the moniker Preston School of Industry this time, members of the band appear on this record, as well as members of Posies and Broken Social Scene. PSOI's first record, 'All This Sounds Gas', is an absolute overlooked classic. The follow-up, uh, not so much. Still, I hope Stairs gets his due the way Stephen Malkmus has. I can't wait for this one. If you missed PSOI's Cure-influenced "Falling Away", check out the video. Hilarious.
