TRACKS OF THE WEEK – 01/09/20 Edition
This week on Tracks, it’s a big welcome back for Wild Nothing. “Foyer” is our first glimpse of the new EP Laughing Gas, forthcoming on Captured Tracks. Mark your calendars for two just announced Wild Nothing shows at the Great American Music Hall, SF on 5/20 and 5/21. Sacramento punk duo Dog Party continue to stretch out. Right before Christmas they were kind enough to drop a present, their new single Dog Party Sings The Beatles, featuring a luminous cover of “I Feel Fine”.
Continuing with this week’s ‘easy on the ears’ theme, two entries from LA stake out different turf to pleasing effect. Jasper Bones most recent single “Missing You” vibes hard for us, and Winnetka Bowling League conjures up a storm worthy of Fountains of Wayne on “Kombucha”. Exiting on a high note, Ashland, OR’s Adey Bell, has a new project, Venus Exalted, and “Canyon” is our focus track.
