Last Week’s Jams Today (8.29 – 9.2)

Strangely, I felt like we didn’t cover a ton of territory last week, but then I noticed we have quite a playlist, and that’s even with a few jams not quite making the streaming services of choice. I opened the playlist with “It Keeps Happening” from Germany’s Matching Outfits; I couldn’t stop playing the tune all week, so I figured it was best up front. We also got new stuff from forever-faves like Peel Dream Magazine and the Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness. Stoked on both the new Eerie Wanda and Submotile tunes, and RayRay loved that latest Disq tune. Settle in for the day and turn it up nice and loud.

Last Week’s Jams, Today (7.11 – 7.15)

Was a bit of a hectic week, as I was out of town for a good part of last week, so RayRay helmed things solo, keeping you up to date with new jams from The Berries and Sorry. I crept in towards the end of the week with recent favorites like Key Out and Scarves, but I was most excited to hear new music from Bubblegum Lemonade hitting the airwaves! Oh! And a brand new album out of the blue from Neil Brogan! I mean, it was a short week coverage-wise, but some surefire jams to listen to in here.

The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness Share In the Right

If you’re lining up your anticipated releases scheduled for the end of the year, then you should surely have The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness penciled in your “must listen” category. Today we get the third single from the band’s forthcoming LP, and it’s a straight up pop rock gem. The band have always operated with a velvety vocal approach, and that’s balanced out by the fuzzy riffs banging through your speakers, reminiscent of Teenage Fanclub. It feels jittery, teetering on the edge of an panic attack, then opens right up into their melodic pop rock brand, smoothing the wrinkles and winning us over. The Third Wave Of is out on September 9th via Bobo Integral.

Last Week’s Jams, Today (6.6 – 6.10)

Pretty busy week over at ATH, jammed out to bunches of bunches of tunes, plus did a nice little quick wrap-up of what’s going on in the Austin scene. Our friends Dummy continued their world domination with their great new single from Sub Pop, plus we got some new tracks from forever faves Slow Rosary, Alex Dupree and Scarves…not to mention a bunch of newer acts we’re starting to fall in love with, like Blue Cove and Cusp. Check out the jams and enjoy your Monday my friends.

The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness Share Turning Red

Some pop music is written for the moment, but then other pop songwriters go about their business writing timeless pop tunes, just like the track below from The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness. I don’t know whether it’s the perfect guitar jangle notes ringing out with that percussive stomp behind or whether it belongs to the comforting curl of the warm vocals, but I don’t think there’s a single person who’d turn this track off. It’s living somewhere in that perfect place between our love for bands like Teenage Fanclub and Nada Surf, so if that’s your bag, then you’re going to want to grab Third Wave Of… from Bobo Integral/Tear Jerk.

Last Week’s Jams, Today (5.2 – 5.6)

So much good music last week, and so much to cover. Well, we tried to get up as much as we could, plus Brian got some great photos of Good Morning and Packs. Here’s our weekly musical recap, with lots of awesome news, like new releases from Tan Cologne, Field Guides…and Voxtrot! I think the news of their Early Music compilation definitely made my week, even as I was held hostage in my classroom by state testing. Enjoy some jams from last week.

The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness Announce New LP

What’s that? New music from the Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness? Yeah, I’m in. The group dropped a surprise single back in April, but I wasn’t ready for them to hit me with another single and another album, but I welcome it here! This song begins with a bit heavier guitar vibe than what they’ve brought out in early albums; it feels like a heavier brand of power-pop, ready for some anthemic stadium performances. But, as always, they turn the jangling guitars on, bridging the power pop into some super brilliant melodic chorus work, clearly knocking it out of the park with their charming songwriting. It’s like if Tom Petty was a really big indiepop nerd, and its wonderful. Their new record is titled The Third Wave Of…and its out in September via Bobo Integral.

The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness Drop New Single

Are the Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness one of the better kept secrets in the indie pop realm? Well, let’s hope not, as you’d be missing out on some great tunes if you skip over the band; start by going back to last years Songs from Another Life. But, alas, its Bandcamp Friday, so the band have dropped this wonderful new single to get inside your ear. I think the group open up the tune with this really soft crystalline guitars, strumming over each other. But, drums kick in slightly, and there’s this brief uplifting moment that immediately takes the track to another level. It’s just a tease, as the chorus really shows where the band’s melodic play shines right to your heart. Don’t sleep on this one.

The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness Share Rose Tinted Glass

We’re only a few weeks away from the release of Songs from Another Life, so the Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness have tossed us one final single to entice your ears. If you haven’t already heard the crisp pop rock sounds the band have to offer, then please, indulge us by clicking play below. Just imagine Teenage Fanclub peeling off their masks Scooby Doo style to reveal an even poppier version of themselves; this is what you get back. The pacing and vocals are pretty spot on comparison, but there’s this lightness that comes with the Boys presentation, something in the riffs just feels a bit more airy. Plus, they’re dropping the new LP via Bobo Integral on February 5th, and you know we love the label, so its a win-win!

Another Track from the Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness

Before we left for our little holiday break, we shared several tunes from the forthcoming LP from The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness. But, over that little break, the band shared another great pop tune, so as we’re easing back into full-on work mode, I figured I’d share this bouncing gem with you. This tune is the perfect blast of power pop goodness, toying with an acoustic intro before dropping in a joyous blast of fuzz that echoes throughout the last bits of the song. I think for me, my only complaint here is that the song’s too short! I could listen to this all day! Luckily, Songs from Another Life is only a month away; grab it from Bobo Integral!
