Random Music Thoughts – April 29, 2010

Posted: April 29, 2010 in Random Music Thoughts

I just read that Superchunk are playing Taste of Randolph. That’s awesome b/c I didn’t get to see them at SXSW.

If you are in southern California tonight you have quite a nice dilemma: The Antlers are @ Detroit Bar, Rogue Wave is @ El Rey Theatre, and Murder City Devils are @ The Glass House.

Muzzle of Bees has a review of the Yeasayer/Sleigh Bells show in Madison, sounds like it was a blast.

Stereogum has up the video for Band of Horses’ “NW Apartment.” It seems like they are definitely going in a more upbeat direction for this album.

AV Club has short piece on the new Interpol song.

Speaking of AV Club, they wrote up a guide to emo. This article brings me back to the days of high school (1996 – 2000). My four favorite “emo” records at the time were Jimmy Eat World’s Static Prevails (1996), The Get Up Kids’ Four Minute Mile (1997), Tuesday’s Freewheelin’ (1997), and The Promise Ring’s Nothing Feels Good (1997). Here are some songs from those albums:

I couldn’t find anything decent on youtube for Tuesday, so here is a link to Tuesday’s “Goodbyes Have Been Said” on Lala.
