3 Songs: On Repeat

Obits – “Spun Out” (The veteran Brooklyn-based indie-rock band featuring former members of Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes and Edsel return with their tremendous third album, Bed & Bugs, out this week on Sub Pop.  The tremolo-heavy surf-punk charge of single, “Spun Out” stands out among the album’s genre-defiant garage-rock flurry.)  

Dot Dash – “(Here’s To) The Ghosts Of The Past” (This veteran D.C. based band features former members of Julie Ocean, Velocity Girl and hardcore pioneers, Youth Brigade.  Their third album, Half-Remembered Dream was recently released via The Beautiful Music and blends infectiously catchy power-pop melodies with super-charged post-punk rhythms for a sound that is both modern and slightly nostalgic all at once.)

Okkervil River – “Stay Young” (Okkervil River return with their new album, The Silver Gymnasium, their debut for new label ATO Records.  It marks the first time frontman Will Sheff has written about himself in song, as he reminisces about growing up in small-town New Hampshire in 1986.  Produced by legendary 80’s producer, John Agnello (Cindi Lauper, John Mellencamp), the album evokes nostalgia for cassettes - the album is even available on cass. - and VCR’s and features additional instrumentation such as sax solos and synths to set the stage for Sheff’s distinct storytelling.)
