If you hit play below and begin reading these words, you will likely finish the song before you finish reading the post. Yes this new singled called “Super Pop” from Brooklyn based duo Washer is a short and sweet rock n roll song urging you to turn up the volume. It’s a little old school garage rocker with some nice elements of an updated rock sound to give it a solid edge. I’ve already played it three time while writing this post.
Not going to lie, but this song totally rules from Dowsing. It’s filled with a youthful vibrancy that’s not too serious, and enough hooked employed to keep you interested. It reminds me a lot of super early Say Anything, building swelling guitar hooks and matching them with heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. It’s a fun number to just turn up loud, allowing you to sample the band’s sound as they prepare to head out of their hometown in Chicago with their friends Ratboys. Not only will the two bands tour together, but they’ll be releasing a split EP via Topshelf Records on September 9th.

One of our favorite local acts Sad Accordions have just released a split EP with Monahans, each offering up two songs for the endeavor. It’s a limited release being put out by new label Mt. Inadale Records, so we’re definitely happy to see a new label spring up with Austin bands in mind. The Accordions track definitely continues to show how the band has improved upon their sound, growing into one of the most complete groups in town. We hope you dig this track, and if you do, scramble to get yourself one of the 500 copies of the limited pressing floating around![audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/01-Denial-Takes-the-Train.mp3]
