A pillar of the NYC indie pop scene (the group has been active since the late aughts) The City and Horses are back at it again with another absolutely delightful LP called Ruins, and if you're anything like us--chomping at the bit, unable to wait for the release to officially drop tomorrow--then we have a really killer gift for you: The Deli is streaming Ruins a whole day early. The album is 12 tracks worth of dynamic, wistful, and often quirky indie pop that draws on mastermind Marc Cantone's commanding lyricism and pop-writing prowess. The City and Horses describes the release as being "about a girl, a boy and his OCD," but there's so much more going on here, as the band manages to navigate a myriad of topics, feels, and genres--all while remaining infectiously catchy. Seriously, we dare you to not be humming these tracks after the first pass, but the songs are well worth spending the time on multiple listens. Check out Ruins streaming below and check back on their site tomorrow to get your paws on the downloadable version here. - Olivia Sisinni
