The Posies are simply one of the most creative, resourceful, and influential bands to emerge from the American DIY underground in the last two decades. When the Posies' core singer/songwriter partnership of Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer sundered in 1998, fans around the world mourned their breakup. But now is the time for all Posies people to dry their tears and shed their black garments: Rykodisc has just released "Every Kind of Light" - the first full-strength new album by the Posies since their 1998 swan song "Success." With this recording, both Jon and Ken have set aside their prolific solo careers to rededicate themselves to the group. "Every Kind of Light" is the work of a new quartet - with bassist Matt Harris and drummer Darius Minwalla - that is the closest thing to an equal creative partnership in the Posies' long history.
