As we’re in the thick of spring, it seems like we’re approaching peak musical release time and, I know, sometimes it can be a little difficult to keep up with everything as it’s coming at you. Today, I’ve got three music videos that came out within the past week that you should watch/listen to, if you’re trying to stay relevant. They’re all a little different in terms of genre and style, but all worthy of your time, so strap in and let’s get rolling– check them out after the jump.
While the Can You Deal EP might have been recorded in a quick spurt, the song’s we’ve heard from the new Bleached EP don’t bare any resemblance of being rushed. For instance, on this latest single, it might be the best bit of sunny guitar pop the ladies have written. While there’s a sugary call in the verses, there’s this distorted moment around the 2 minute mark that’s really emphatic, offering the perfect punch, giving the song the perfect balance. The band’s Jennifer Clavin has even constructed a zine documenting how music will always be the soundtrack to our lives…both zine and EP will be released by Dead Oceans on March 3rd.
Swedish rock band, Soundtrack of Our Lives, have been hard at work on a new double LP (that’s right, double LP) and are streaming new song “Flipside” from the album on Rollingstone. The huge new album is entitled Communion and is due out digitally on January 6 & physically March 3rd. Anyone else remember the lead singer running out into the crowd at the band’s early ACL set several years ago?
