Throwback Rock From Blowout

unnamedI don’t know about everyone else, but I’m struggling to make it through what has turned into a longer week than it needed to be. My spirits are lifted a bit though as I listen to this new single “Green Couch” from Portland based pop group Blowout. This one is seriously reminding me of my days with ATX based group Cruiserweight with the strong female vocals and pop punk sounding music driving the song. I’ve long been a fan of music like this and you can consider me a fan of this song.

Blowout will drop No Beer, No Dad on August 5th via Lauren Records.

Poppy Tune from The So So Glos

383997_10150390708559738_62209039737_8404542_442126120_nWe’ve been fans for some time of The So So Glos, and that was cemented by my time spent listening to their phenomenal debut, Blowout.  It seems that some hard-working individuals have allowed them some free studio time to record a track of their liking, and the result seems like its a good fit.  Through their short time, they’ve grown increasingly softer on the ears…meaning that their brash style has sort of begun to fade.  That being said, it’s clear that some bands are meant to move on in that way, as this song offers a glimpse to just how great things sound when all the pieces come together. Give it a listen.
