I grew up by Canada and for the first 18 years of my life I got to "enjoy" a shitload of snow. Now, I live in Texas and for the first time Iím really longing for those winter days of my youth. The heat this summer has been killer and I've been staying in to watch Netflix instead of getting my ass to Red River for some live music. I've had enough of the couch, though, so this Thursday I'm heading to Emoís to see Followed By Static and John Wesley Coleman celebrate the release of a 12" split.

them as "fuzz pop doom folk," and the music lives up to that
enticing description. Itís dark and often distorted, but
underneath the noise are pulsing rhythms and a lot of
melodies. However, on Cop Gloves this isn't
necessarily the case, as they pretty much ditch their
trademark noise fuzz in favor for some country twang. You
have to listen to it if only for the excellent guitar solo
at the end of the song.
