Today's Quick Mention: If you don't
have plans to sit around and revisit Nolan's Batman
movies in anticipation of The Dark Knight Rises
on Friday, I recommend spending your evening
with She Sir, Shivery Shakes, and Dagars. Tix
The Noisettes are back! Once upon a time I
really loved them, so news of their return puts a
smile on my face. Contact is the name
of the band's new full length, and it will be their
first release since 2009's Wild Young Hearts.
Check out two new tracks below (one is an mp3, the
other a video), and then make a note to look out for
the LP on August 27. Enjoy.
Noisettes - That Girl:
While Shingai Shoniwa and Dan Smith are very capable of
pulling out all the stops and rocking hard, I think they're
at their best when they lean more towards the soul pop side
of things. Sure, every now and again you'll end up
with a song like this that might be too cute, but
there's always just enough charm and energy to win you over.
