Granted, the wait until August is still three months away for Paper Lions second LP release “My Friends”, but to calm the coo they have offered their single ‘Philadelphia’ for free download! The song introduces itself with a calming and slow paced vocal that breezes into a buzzing Indie Rock track that connects the distorted guitar riffs with hook laden pop beats.
Got a message this morning from Scott in Motocade (a four-piece band from Auckland, NZ) asking me to take a listen to a couple tracks of their EP Into The Fall.
I gotta admit, when I saw that the e-mail in my inbox was 12 megs I kind of cringed. Too many bad experiences here where people have sent large files clogging my inbox….
I gotta say, best 12-meg e-mail ever. I dig their sound. A good mix between sounds of Bloc Party, Strokes (and maybe a little Tokyo Police Club), I was blasting My Friends and Bomb Squad as I was getting ready this morning.
Now how are we going to get them to North America to play……
Check out the video for Bomb Squad.
Off to Arcade Fire (and Handsome Furs) tonight.
