Welcome to another Monday my friends. First, taking a minute here, as I’m writing this post, to celebrate the 7 day young Rhys Bennett Lankford! That’s right, went and had me another one of those kids, and its been a lot of fun, and well, we’re super stoked on the lil’ fella. That said, we also had a short week, so maybe we didn’t get as many jams in as we might otherwise. But, rest assured, we’ve got a pretty solid little collection of tunes here for you to begin your week, with quite a few ATX appearances from the likes of Lola Tried, American Friend and more. You know what to do, press play and stuff.
We’ve found ourselves jamming to Keg quite a bit this year, and with a new EP on the horizon, perhaps we should share a bit of that joy with you. The Brighton outfit will surely get you some Shame comparisons, but there ability to flesh those sounds beyond is due to the group carrying 7 members in their pocket. You’ll get that angular post punk guidance, that sharp bob and weave delivery. But, the most exciting elements come when various members decide to toy with the song’s DNA, weaving in elements of jazz and post-rock into the band’s exploratory adventure. You’ll find this group on tour with Squid, where you can grab their Assembly EP, out October 22nd via Alcopop.
