Today's Quick Mention: I've probably
talked about it too much already on
but I'd just like to reiterate that the Green Day
show at Red 7 last night was insanely awesome.
I won't even be able to see anything this weekend,
as it just won't live up to that experience.
Here's some music. Enjoy.
- Los Adolescentes:
I wish I knew more about this band. I found this
gloriously upbeat number over at You Ain't No Picasso, but
he didn't actually share any info on them, and going the way
of Google seems to only return results that barely mention
them. Oh well. At least I can say that this is a
gem, and that it's from Musica, Gramatica, Gimnasia,
which is available on Spotify.
Gibson - La Grande:
Laura Gibson has been around for a nice bit and has done
some good stuff, but I have to admit that I've never exactly
been a thorough follower of hers. That should change,
and I think it will if the new album has some more songs
like this driving effort. Barsuk will place the La
Grande full length everywhere on January 24.
Mascis - I've Been Thinking:
If I'm in the right mood, the acoustic material from
Dinosaur Jr's J. Mascis makes for a great listen. This
track is no different, which means that if you're feeling
sappy today you should find plenty to like here. This
is a b-side for an upcoming single called Circle
that's due out November 22 via Sub Pop. Mascis also
has a full length out now titled Several Shades Of Why.
Yes - Tia:
I shared the track Automail a while back, and now
that Way Yes have put out their 7" I thought I should also
post up the rather easy to love b-side. If you don't
want to dance to this at least a little, then you may be
baking up a bunch of frownies today. You can get the
Oranjudio 7" at this very moment from the fine folks
over at Lefse.
- Sun Showers:
The silky smooth arrangement in this song makes me want to
slow dance in the rain with someone, but that's not
necessarily a bad thing. After all, who doesn't need a
little bit of that in their life? In any case, this is
the first single off the upcoming Fives Years With The
Sun EP, which is expected to be released on January 24
