Mt St Helens Vietnam Band just left for a week-long jag down the coast with Frog Eyes, leaving behind a very lonely me (frontman Benjamin Verdoes and keyboardist Traci Eggleston are my dog's godparents; they also feed me dinner a lot) and a brand-new song that premiered on Spin.com today. "Leaving Trails" is the first track to be released from the quartet's second record, Where the Messengers Meet, which hits stores on August 3 on Dead Oceans. Fans of the group's eponymous debut should beware: "Leaving Trails" is ghostly, swirling, distorted, and in short has left behind much of the power-pop sensibilities that marked their first record.

Click here to download the track for free on Spin.com, and check out the band's performance at Seattle's Town Hall on July 8.
