3 Songs: On Repeat

Extra Arms – “Disruptor” (Detroit’s Extra Arms - led by Ryan Allen, formerly of Thunderbirds Are Now! – will release their fifth album, Up From Here, today on Dadstache Records.  Previously a solo project, this new album is the second as a full band with guitarist Michael Gallacher, bassist Ryan Marshall and drummer Sean Sommer.  The band quickly finds their stride on this new collection of songs that explode with emo-tinged punk rock and power-pop melodies in just 22 minutes leaving you wanting more.)  

Daystar – “Buttons And Brass” (The Portland-by-way-of Chicago quartet led by Derek Phillips is set to return today with their new album, The Complete Recordings.  Blending anthemic 70’s arena rock hooks and 60’s brit-rock with infectious power-pop; their lushly-layered and harmony-rich sound references Wings, Badfinger and Big Star along with Beatles-esque melodies and elements of folk and prog-rock.)

The Building – “Life Half Lived” (The Building is the recording and performing moniker of multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Anthony LaMarca, who is best known as the guitarist for The War On Drugs.  The Youngstown, Ohio native has also drummed for St. Vincent and Dean & Britta and recently released his latest album, PETRA, via Concord Records.  LaMarca battled a life-threatening disease while writing and recording the album which expands on his dreamy folk-pop sound and the result is his most personal and affecting album yet.)
