Attendees at our Waynestock unofficial SXSW party earlier this year got an advance preview of ARMS’ exuberant Summer Skills, but here’s the first studio taste: “Fleeced,” a tense rocker that comes in and out of focus like your favorite Vimeo clip. The album’s due Nov. 9; if it’s not the best indie-rock album of the month, I’ll eat my laptop.

The band also covered the Sun Kil Moon classic “Carry Me Ohio” for the Voice Project, adding a drifting keyboard to the harrowing melody. Watch it below.
