To The Nuts!
Like I said, I've been getting a bunch of really good music lately.
Bound Stems, "Happens To Us All Otherwise"
J Roddy Walston and the Business, "Stop Rip and Roll"
Poor But Sexy, MySpace
Bound Stems: Based in Chicago. Second album entitled The Family Afloat out on vinyl on 7/11 and everywhere else on 9/9 via Flameshovel Records. Catch them at Mercury Lounge on 7/24 and Velvet Lounge on 7/25. RIYL: Early Modest Mouse without the cow-punk affectations.
J Roddy Walston and the Business: Based in Baltimore. MySpace. Supporting their recent album, Hail Megaboys. Catch them at Iota tomorrow night (7/18). RIYL: Straight ahead, fun rock and roll.
Poor But Sexy. Based in DC, featuring Jason Caddell of The Dismemberment Plan. No MP3s to link yet, but there's some really cool songs up on their MySpace page. Catch them at Velvet Lounge tomorrow night (7/18). RIYL: The idea of mixing Dismemberment Plan with soul music.
