Rings - Black Habit (2007)
Much like Excepter's Debt Dept., how I missed this baffles the mind. Released on Paw Tracks last year, First Nation apparently changed their name to Rings, and released this. It's like their first, native american inspired album, but beefed out with R & B. There is a song that sounds like Abby Portner (Avey Tare's sister, hence being signed to Paw Tracks - or altogether for that matter) straight up ripped off a melody from Justin Timberlake's last album. That notwithstanding, this is good campfire music.
