Mondays are always rough, but this week we had a Savior, literally. “Dancing on Glass”, Soft Kill’s first single off their forthcoming album, Savior, is what got us though the Monday blues. This Post Punk band’s ability to stay relevant has caught our eye. Their newest single has given us just a taste of what their new album will be like, and it already has us craving more! Their new album will be released on May 11th, and it can’t come soon enough!
Reissue Tuesday graced us with Closing Time by Tom Waits! Closing Time was Tom’s 1973 debut album that received some critical acclaim, but little commercial success. However, in the years following it’s release the record gained more traction and became a cult classic. The reissue was done ny ANTI- Records.
We got hit with some rad Indie Rock on Wednesday. Bazan has gone through a decent amount of members, but they have always had one constant, David Bazan. Wednesday’s feature was a split between Bazan and Lane through 15 Passenger, a sick record label based out of Omaha, Nebraska. Rare Coins: David Bazan & Sean Lane will be out on April 6th, the album shows a good balance between both artists
To close this week’s review we got some good ol’ garage rock. Tamacco, a band named after an episode of The Simpsons, is a group that gives their all. Their newest single is called “Shake It” is four minutes of pure creativity, including a saxophone solo. This band has a lot going for them and their official EP release is happening in Toronto on March 22nd. Keep an eye out for these guys, we expect some more gnarly tunes.
