If you're depressed because the music industry is fucked, its shattered your dreams and because you feel like you're hearing the same tunes over and over, then this list will do 2 things: give you hope and put a smile on your face. Here's a list of 5 records you will definitely stream in the next few weeks...
As Josh told us a few months back: "Being the cool new band in town isn't our goal, it's to create a sustainable art project that will continue to inspire and nurture us as we grow in our lives as a band, as friends and people". But what's funny, looking back at the interview, is the final question.
One word to describe this record? Ours is homespun, what's yours?
The first taste of the new record Up! is called Not Gonna Burn Myself Anymore. Though the band thought about going more electronic, they've decided to stick with their sound which made them who they are now. After hearing the first song, we're happy the way it turned out.
We first heard about them in 2015, after they had only released 2 tracks on Bandcamp (Castigadas en el Granero and Between Cans) back in 2014. We had a good feeling and guess hard work and many gigs around the world have paid off. Here's New For You, where they show you how to play football.
it sounds like it's been made in California. But what’s a Silver Dollar Moment? “It’s anything that’s unexpectedly brilliant”, says Henry. “We played in Toronto at this bar called the Silver Dollar Room. We’d been in Canada for 36 hours, no sleep, we’d already played at 10, then we played a show at the Silver Dollar at 2am and it was one of the best shows we’ve ever played. So a silver dollar moment became anything that’s good but unexpectedly”.
Basically, the record was never a finished work and Toledo finally figured out how to finish it (how do you know a record is done)? The final touches have been made and the new version is coming out very soon. You can listen to the 2011 version here and below the new version 2018 of Cute Thing. And compare.
