Show Preview: Good Morning @ Mohawk

I’ve been writing about Good Morning for several years now, but since Prize//Reward, the band really seem to have found themselves on a quick rise to popularity, leading us to the very recent release of Basketball Breakups. Tonight, the Aussie bunch bring their sounds to Austin for the first time (as far as I can remember), and why not celebrate them for just making it overseas, as it’s getting super hard for those overseas acts to make it onto our shores. I think the casual pop of the band has them poised to breakout over here, so tonight might be your chance to catch them on the ascendancy. Plus, they’re supported by two of our favorite locals in Daphne Tunes and Pelvis Wrestley. Tickets are scarce, so hunt one down if you dare!

Good Morning Share Classic Quip

If ever there was a non-punk version of Parquet Courts, then that award would go to this brand new track from Good Morning, off their new LP. It’s weird, it has one foot in that sort of nonchalant cool, while also kind of looking back upon the dreaded “dole-wave” sound of the band’s homeland; I can even here parts, however, that sound an awful lot like they just picked up where Beat Happening left off. You just don’t come by good consistent pop bands nowadays, but this bunch has been doing it for sometime. Speaking of, today they release Basketball Breakups, and they’ll be in North America at the end of the month…so sample these tunes before they come to the streets of your town.
