Feb. 25, 2014, Atlanta – Spirits and the Melchizedek Children’s So Happy, It’s Sad (March 4, Fallen Arrow) is streaming in its entirety via The Onion’s A/V Club (http://www.avclub.com/article/stream-the-haunting-new-album-by-spirits-and-the-m-201413).

The Atlanta-based sextet, led by charismatic singer/guitar player Jason Elliott, recorded So Happy, It’s Sad at Studilaroche earlier this year.  “This record is quite the celebration of the bittersweet experience that we all face throughout our lives,” explained Elliott.  “Somewhat of a letter from us to you.  I would hope that you can take the wonderfully awful elements in your life and reframe them into something peaceful.”

Having become one of Atlanta’s most talked about rock bands, often singled out alongside hometown darlings Royal Thunder as the two area bands to keep an eye on (Royal Thunder’s Mlny Parsonz contributes vocals to So Happy, It’s Sad).  Creative Loafing Music Editor Chad Radford said SAMTC create “a sparse, ghostly, art-folk din that moves from a 4 a.m. whisper of distant, lonely strumming and moaning to a roar of tape hiss.”
