Ted Leo (sans Pharamacists) wrapped up his recording series from Room 205 with his classic tune “The Sword and The Stone.” The series was recorded in a bare, stripped down space and emphasized mainly Leo’s voice and sole guitar.
“The Sword and The Stone” comes from Leo’s 2005 EP Tell Balgeary, Balgury Is Dead.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists have always been on the watch list of notable indie releases. Leo and the boys are set to release their newest album titled The Brutalist Bricks on March 9, 2010, which will be released on their new home, Matador Records. While no tracklisting has been leaked yet and details are still a bit sparse, the label is offering fans a chance to download the first single “Even Heroes Have To Die,” for free via Matador’s website. The track shows a more mature side of the Pharmacists though does not lose the spirit and sound of the band that we have come to known and love. With acoustic guitars blending with a bit of indie punk, Leo’s voice is catchier than ever. This is certainly an album to be excited about for ’10!
