The third single from Dublin’s September Girls is out in less than two weeks and it’s about time I mentioned how good it is. If you’ve been on the lookout for a few tracks to round out your perfect Summer playlist, you’re gonna grab this brilliant little 7” ASAP. A-side “Talking” is led by a heavy organ drone ala Look Blue Go Purple’s “Curcumspect Penelope”, but is ultimately probably better suited for a caveman dance party than a romp through a field of flowers. On the flipside, though, we find “Some For Me”: A quick-paced pop song—perhaps their hookiest yet—marked by a great lead and loads of reverb-soaked harmonies. If you happen to get a mixtape from me this Summer, I can guarantee you that “Some For Me” will be on it. And that’s probably the best compliment I could give.
It out April 22 on Art For Blind! Get it here!
Damp Face is the latest EP from the Seattle, WA-based quartet of La Luz. “Sure as Spring” is the latest single from that EP, and when you listen to the track, it should remind you of a couple of things — some of the great output that the folks at Hardly Art Records has recently put out; but more importantly, it’ll remind you of 60s girl groups such as the Marvellettes, the Ronnettes and others. Ah, the memories.
La Luz will be on a lengthy summer tour with stops in Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; San Diego, CA; Austin, TX; Fort Worth, TX; Atlanta, GA; Knoxville, TN; Nashville, TN; the Bowery Ballroom on July 14th; Boston, MA; and several others.
