3 Songs: On Repeat

Their/They’re/There – “New Blood” (New project from Evan Weiss of Into It. Over it., Mike Kinsella (Owen, Owls, Cap'n Jazz, American Football) and Matthew Frank of Loose Lips Sink Ships.  Analog Weekend, their second EP, is out now via a split release from Polyvinyl and Topshelf Records.  Intricate and pointy math-rock guitar goodness abounds on these three catchy, emo-tinged anthems that were recorded by Ed Rose and also features piano by James Dewees of The Get Up Kids and Reggie and the Full Effect.)  

The Blank Tapes – “No Gifts This Xmas” (Matt Adams and his band just released a self-deprecating Christmas song as a tribute to all those on the “naughty” list complete with tons of sleigh bells, a surf rock guitar solo and of course his unique, skewed 60’s pop sense.  Their latest album, the sunny Vacation was released earlier this year via Oakland's Antenna Farm Records.)

The New Royales – “Fell In Love With A Girl” (The highly-eclectic multi-national quartet is set to release Freedom’s For The Brave: The Mixtape on January 14th, a covers album that highlights their many influences, including their unique takes on tracks by Depeche Mode, The Zombies, Jefferson Airplane and more.  Also included is their throbbing dance-rock spin on the White Stripes’ classic heard here.)
