about

'Ghost Maps', the new single from The Minor Leagues, is available now as a free digital download - the latest in a string of releases from the Cincinnati seven-piece to pair stinging melancholy with insidiously catchy indiepop. The Leagues' last two records covered the end of a relationship and the end of the world in overblown concept-album fashion, and this new track, backed with b-side 'Please Don't Throw My Love Away', is our introduction to North College Hill, the titular town that serves as the focus of their next full-length record, due in September on Datawaslost.

Both songs delight in nostalgia, with Brill Building arrangements filtered through the drive and sing-along choruses of 90s Brit-pop, all set against a backdrop of lush instrumentation. The band's past work has earned them comparisons to recent popsmiths like Belle & Sebastian and The New Pornographers, but their charm, witty lyricism and ear for detail sets them apart from the rest.
