New Track from RACES

Frenchkiss Records has a pretty solid track record with me, especially since the label’s run by some of the bros from Les Savy Fav.  They just released a new EP yesterday from LA band RACES.  The EP is titled Big Broom EP, and I’ve really been enjoying this track here.  I don’t know why, but for some reason the vocal performance sort of gives me this Walkmen feel, but that’s also part of the overall song structure true.  Boiled down, it’s pretty much straight forward indie rock, which in and of itself is refreshing, since no one seems to be kicking it old school anymore. Give it a listen and enjoy your afternoon folks.

RAM On L.A.

front-cover4-finalOne of our favorite blog reads, Aquarium Drunkard, has created a really sweet compilation disc full of some of the great indie acts out of L.A.  Not just a compilation, the album features each band’s take on a song from Paul McCartney’s 1971 solo album RAM. The album is free to download, but The Drunkard is suggesting that you say thanks by donating to his favorite charity No More Land Mines.  With a compilation full of artists like Parson Red Heads, Earlimart, and Bodies of Water, why not donate a little?
