3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Yellow Ostrich - "Marathon Runner" (Alex Schaff's solo bedroom project is now a fully formed trio, and the fuzzy guitar-led anthems on their sophomore album and Barsuk Records debut, Strange Land are both nostalgic and new, with Alex's imaginative lyrics dueling with the guitar for the spotlight.)


2.  Ceremony - "Adult" (Continuing and expanding on the more mature sound of Rohnert Park, the Cali-based punk band's debut for Matador Records, Zoo was released this week.   The stellar new album features longer songs, a positive, optimistic lyrical stance and an experimental sound that trades in the abrasive hardcore for a more classic punk sound, that is sure to shape the punk to come...) 


3.  Capybara - "Late Night Bikes" (The Kansas City experimental folk-pop band released their sophomore album Dave Drusky last month on The Record Machine.  Blending the organic and electronic, their sound is lush and beautiful but at times off-kilter and freaky.  Just how I like it!)
