Traams is getting lots of play in my earholes. I’m hooked, its driving toe-tapping steering wheel slapping sing-a-long post pop punk at its best. get you some, fool.
fatcat (get the album) here
I’ve got a lengthy show for you, to make up for lost time, a bit. I wrote an article on some of the best albums of 2013 so far and I’m going to play some songs from those very albums (and perhaps some that were not mentioned). So, here’s the list:
Marnie Stern released her latest on March 19th and it is full of Marnilicious goodness. Plenty of Marnie to enjoy on this album, keep an eye out, she’s coming to a town near you dishing up 32 flavors of finger tapping fret slapping splendor.
Bay Area natives, The Mallard, released their album Yes On Blood early 2012 on Castle Face Records and have been playing around for the past year and working on some new stuff to be released very soon (hopehope). . . They’re playing this year’s Noise Pop fest in SF and i think at SXSW
Seth Olinsky from Akron/Family has a side project called Cy Dune, and it’s a bit heavier and fuzzier. Definitely worth keeping an ear open for more stuff from Cy Dune and Akron/Family.
San Diego pop punk band Plateaus released their debut LP in the fall of 2012 and it is a rollicking good time top to bottom. The single Do It For You b/w Jasmine was released in May and a video for the song came out in the summer.
