TRACKS OF THE WEEK – 2/4/2021 Edition
Getting this week’s Tracks off to a rousing start, it’s “Villians!”, from the Nashville hardcore outfit Thirdface. Their debut LP Do It With A Smile comes out 3/5 on Exploding In Sound Records. Based in Western Mass., Sunburned Hand Of The Man has unleashed the latest addition to an estimable catalogue, with “Flex” serving as a first taste of the forthcoming LP Pick A Day To Die, out 3/12 on 3 Lobed Recordings.
Toronto’s The Weather Station have unveiled their new LP Ignorance, due out tomorrow on Fat Possum, with “Atlantic” leading the way. Based on what we’ve heard thus far, don’t be at all surprised when this gets strong mentions for this year’s Polaris Prize lists. Sending this week out on a high note, “Satellite”, from LA’s Midnight Sister showcases their new LP Painting The Roses, out now on Jagjaguwar. Don’t forget, tomorrow is the very first Bandcamp Friday of the new year!
