Today’s music could use one more day off. Enjoy.
:Obits – Taste The Diff: This snarling punk track is exactly what all of our summers needed. Turn it way up, friends. Obits will put out a new full length, Bed & Bugs, on September 10 through the almighty Sub Pop.
:Twin Peaks – Irene: While I think Twin Peaks is an odd name for a pop act (I can’t help but think of the breastaurant), I do like their music. This is one glimmering effort. The band will put out Sunken tomorrow on Autumn Tone Records.
:Whirr – Swoon: There’s a whole lot going on in this massive song from Whirr, and I like all of it. A lot. I can’t wait to see them live, as I imagine it’s a thunderous time. Around is due out on Graceface Records tomorrow. If you’re in Austin, the band will play the Mohawk on August 3.
:Static Jacks – I’ll Come Back: Until this pop number came along, I wasn’t at all familiar with the Static Jacks. Now I just need to get on with seeing if the rest of their stuff is this crazy catchy. In Blue Out is due October 1 via Old Friends Records.
:Joseph Childress – Whispering Tide: There was a day over the holiday break where I was just sort of obsessed with this song. Joseph Childress has a great voice, and I pretty much get lost in it. The Rebirths is due August 20 via Empty Cellar Records.
