Despite the recent exit of bassist Eric Axelson (ex-Dismemberment Plan), Maritime will forge on and release We, the Vehicles via Flameshovel Records on April 18th. The Davey von Bohlen-led trio's debut didn't fare so well with fans or the press--there were stand-out moments, of course, but much of Adios felt watered-down indie-pop--too easily consumed and predictable. Pre-release tracks from the new record show maturity and more confidence, which you can hear for yourself below. Even Pitchfork, who basically trashed Maritime's first record, seems stoked about We, the Vehicles, as writer Brian Howe so eloquently described "Tearing Up the Oxygen" in one of the webzine's track reviews.
