It’s been a few years since we’ve heard from Jimmy Hewitt’s project, Lost Film, but I’m pretty sure any indiepop fan will find the tune quite worth the wait. Within seconds the guitar begins to sharply jangle its way into the track, followed in rather quick succession by Hewitt’s soft-spoken vocals. Combined together with fairly minimal percussion you get this dream pop vibe that manages to work just atop this energetic bounce; I love the middling instrumental exploration, giving some air to let the song soar. Zero Summer is the title of the new album, and it’s already worth every penny!
All year long, the Sour Notes have slowly been releasing 7″ after 7″, and we’re really excited to share with you the B-Side from the latest Shoulda/Enough 7″. This song gives a glimpse into the band’s process, and their desire to do multiple 7″s in a year. it came to be after the band switched gears and changed directions on another B-Side, ultimately sticking with this track as it touches on the concept of pursuing your art despite the uncontrollable factors that sit in your way. Musically, I feel like the band are in a great place, especially when lining things up with my tastes; Jared’s voice sounds really solid hanging in the midst of those huge guitar sounds. This is guitar pop at its finest!
The band celebrate the release of this new 7″ with Thelma & the Sleaze, Royal Forest, The Black Drumsetand Fanclub on Friday over at Cheer Up Charlies. Event info HERE.
