    Writer’s Block, the latest effort from Peter Bjorn and John (and the 37th best record of 2006 according to this very website) will finally see stateside release this Feb. 6th on Almost Gold Recordings. In an enticing twist for any completist, the European version of the album will be bundled with a second, bonus CD of six songs. Here’s the tracklist:

    1. Ancient Curse
    2. All Those Expectations (Weak Remix)
    3. Self-Pity
    4. Let’s Call It Off (Original)
    5. Sitar Folks
    6. Young Folks (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Imagination)

    In order to promote the release, the band have also announced two NY dates in January. The first one’s already sold out, so young folks who like their whistling live would be advised to get on buying tickets right quick:

    1/29 – New York, NY (Mercury Lounge)
    1/30 – New York, NY (Bowery Ballroom)
