Just in case anyone missed this over the holidays.
Now playing: Mew, “Snow Brigade” from the album Frengers.
I’ll find you somewhere / Show you how much I care
Know that there is no / escape from my Snow Brigade
Now Playing: Surfer Blood, “Anchorage”
Had this one on repeat since last week. Love the chugging guitars and the woah woah woahs.
Now Playing: Sloan, “Ill Placed Trust” from Never Hear The End Of It
It pains me that I have missed Sloan the last two times they played the greater-D.C. metro area. Both nights I had other shows to see. I used to work at a company that doubled as Sloan’s distribution company in the late ’90s and I saw Sloan multiple times and never really paid attention to them. I wasn’t into them at all. But for some reason I really got into them after I moved to D.C. I listen to Between The Bridges (mixed by Chris Shaw!!) and A-Sides Win so many times I had to remove them from my iTunes library.
Also, this post is an excuse to link to this photo.
Now Playing: Paul Weller “Thinking of You” (Sister Sledge cover - Live at the BBC)
This song has completely made me rethink my stance on disco. That’s how good it is.
Stream the new track “Longform.” Sounds a bit more produced than their older stuff but still has the acoustic guitar + drums foundation. V. much looking forward to the upcoming album.
Now Playing: Sweetness & Light by Lush
Without a doubt one of my 10 or 15 all-time favorite songs. It’s like a burst of sunshine coming through your earbuds. I never get tired of this track.
