Feel like we got a little mellow today, which normally is okay, but it’s Monday, so we could all use a boost to sort of kick on into the afternoon. There’s not a better way than with this new track from Personality Cult off the band’s forthcoming New Arrows LP. It makes sense that the band find their home on Dirtnap Records, as the sound here is one of fury filled with pop hooks; you get some fun backing vocals while the drums are hammering out the furious rhythm that propels the song forward. It’s a fun jam, and you need more fun jams in your life; the LP drops on February 14th.
There are just some bands that you’re going to fawn over, so I’m always glad when I get a chance to see Terry Malts. It didn’t hurt that they had some great local acts supporting them before their set, which made for an all-around enjoyable night for us. Staying up late on a school night, well worth it.
You can read on for my thoughts and such things, not to mention B.Gray’s photos of the evening.

I’m going to beg you to come to this show. I absolutely love the Terry Malts and their no bullshit live shows. They’ve come through town before, but their return to Austin comes on the heels of their latest release, Nobody Realizes This is Nowhere (Slumberland Records). It’s just another excellent record that deserves a huge audience, so be part of that on Thursday night. If you play your cards right, you’ll also be treated to excellent sets by locals New Arrows and Shivery Shakes (who just finished recording their own LP!) Great bands deserve great audiences so they can put on great shows…come be part of it.
