3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Cymbals Eat Guitars - "Definite Darkness" (Originally scheduled to be released in September, Barsuk Records moved up the release of their highly anticipated sophomore album Lenses Alien to this week. The fuzzed out guitars and catchy melodies remain on the 90's guitar rock revivalist's' new album. Catch them on tour with the like-minded Hooray For Earth.)

2. YAWN - "Acid" (Chicago psych-pop band throws everything into the kitchen sink on their debut album, Open Season, out now on FeelTrip/Englophile. Tribal, world music rhythms collide with electronics and gaze-y guitars for a sound that will, wait for it...not make you yawn!)

3. Jacuzzi Boys - "Cool Vapors" (The Miami-based trio released Glazin', their second album this week on Hardly Art Records. The new album may be a bit more polished, but that just allows their neon, punk-laced power-pop to shine like the hot South Florida sun even though it was recorded in Michigan.)
