HEY! LISTEN: Spirit Family Reunion -- "One Way Ticket"

It's been more than a minute since we've heard from Spirit Family Reunion, but I'm happy to report that the Brooklyn-based folk band has returned in excellent form. You can hear for yourself below on their new single, "One Way Ticket."

If there's one thing you need to know about Spirit Family Reunion, it's this: a few years ago they were featured performers in Bryant Park, a small oasis in the middle of midtown. On a Tuesday night, amidst the hustle and bustle of people rushing home from work, the band not only drew a crowd of devoted fans willing to ride the L train all the way into Manhattan, but they also managed to bring in a few dozen people who spontaneously dropped their evening plans to stick around in the park and enjoy the music.

This was when old-timey music bands were truly a dime a dozen in Brooklyn. When the rent actually was cheap, Williamsburg wasn't quite a cliche, and the borough was truly full of DIY energy -- and, of course, plenty of bad moustaches and skinny jeans.

Spirit Family Reunion's new album, Ride Free, will be out on August 9th.
