Coming November 12, Oh July is more character study than sequence of songs, more history lesson wrapped in the present than a single song waiting for the internet to bring about buzz. Concepts aside, the songs at the foundation of Oh July are masterfully designed and bathed in the idyllic voices of Geoffrey Wilson and Hannah Jensen... both rising above concept through the heart-rending conduit of song.
Jus Post Bellum is the story of a man and a woman. An extended narrative. A character study, painted in broad strokes and finely etched. Jus Post Bellum is a man and a woman. A midwestern couple cohabiting in real life, looking towards the past for inspiration. A group of musicians, pulling upon the lessons of history, painting pictures in the present.

Brooklyn's Jus Post Bellum share a second single, "Abe and Johnny", from their intimate forthcoming record, Oh July. What "Abe and Johnny" brings is the perfect point of reference for this collection of story songs inspired by the Civil War, and more broadly, the tragic events of that time in American History.
