Burger Records have released another gem, this time by Lovely Bad Things and their new EP, Homebodies. From it is a nice pop rocker called “Hiding To Nothing”, which sounds a bit like early R.E.M. or Let’s Active, or even The La’s “There She Goes”.
Due out sometime in 2017 is the new album from Lovely Bad Things and they decided to make a video from it using a VHS camcorder, or at least that’s what it looks like. “Teenage Grownups” is a nice way to go back to what it felt like, or perhaps as grown-ups, we feel like we’re still young punks.
After being on the road opening for Green Day, Best Coast are now heading back on the road to do a headlining tour. The duo will no doubt be performing songs from their recently completed EP, the title of which has yet to be determined. What has been determined are where they will be this summer. Go look.
