- Lapse – “Pet Shop Boys – West End Girls” [4-30]
- Portugal. The Man – “Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now)” [4-29]
Taking Back Sunday just released a new single today, and even though they’re no longer an indie band I was gonna make an exception, ’cause hey, they’re effin’ Taking Back Sunday with the original line-up and some of us greet that kind of news with excitement most people reserve for the return of major deities.
Buuut they don’t need the press and the song isn’t really that good (*cough* go here anyway *cough*).
On the other hand, Portugal. The Man also dropped a new track today and it’s awesome, so that’s what we’re going with.
These guys never disappoint – from their roots as a more experimental, heavier avant funk/jam band, to their more straight-ahead 60s and 70s rock releases like the almost unbearably good The Satanic Satanist – they’ve dropped album after album of solid material. Clearly influenced by the Beatles here (I know, I know, who isn’t?), it’s safe to say their streak will be continuing. Listen to those strings!
Also, to anyone who checks this out on a regular basis, apologies for the lack of posts. Stay tuned, I’ve got something fun and a little different cooking that I’m gonna start next week.
