Last Week’s Jams, Today (August 23 -27)

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re doing alright, physically and emotionally. We’re here to wrap up last week’s hits, or at least what we loved. This collection has a bunch of songs included from some albums that dropped on Friday, as well as new tunes from Gustaf, Dinner and the new collaboration from Living Hour + Peel Dream Magazine. Start your week off right by reviewing what we loved last week. Have a good day!

Bad Bangs Share Can’t Dance

Next Friday, Bad Bangs will drop their new LP, Character Building, but before we get there, let’s introduce you to the band by way of their latest single. As the song begins, you get these little guitar notes, softened on the edges, but sharp in their execution; they swirl about your ear as the vocals come into the fray. The vocals work in like a heavy breath, warmed at the edges, but weighted in this manner that allows tension to build. Then, the guitars switch up, bringing in these psychedelic garage chords shooting this way and that, making sure you remember the Melbourne outfit come next week’s release. Character Building drops on September 3rd via Blossom Rot.
