Nice Guitar Pop From Clearance

A quick search on the ATH will show only a single post from several years ago about Chicago based band Clearance. All that really means is I don’t know a whole lot about the band and can allow myself to listen to each song with fresh ears. Impressing my critical ear today is this fresh new piece of work called “Haven’t You Got the Time?”. Immediately one can compare this to something straight out of the 60s pop genre if you blended it with a few parts of more recent indie bands like Foreign Born or Fruit Bats. I’m thinking this will begin a whole slew of posts on our website featuring Clearance.

This track appears on new album At Your Leisure due out July 27th via Top Shelf Records.

Clearance Rocks College Radio Styles

clearanceYou looking for the new Malkmus? The new Pavement? I think you better invest some time in this new Clearance single.  It’s a little bit more upbeat than some of the band’s other recordings, but it’s infectious stylings are undeniable. After a slew of well-received 7 inches, the group are finally coming around to release their debut, Rapid Rewards; it will see a release date on September 29th via Tall Pat and Unsatisfied Records.  Seriously, if you don’t hear Malkmus in here you aren’t listening close enough…get that ear up to the speaker.
