(31) Days of Good//12.6.16

the-blow-think-about-me

Fantastic one-off. You could tell people this is from a John Hughes movie and I doubt anyone would think twice. Crossing my fingers for more new tunes.

The Blow – Think About Me [single]

broncho-double-vanity

Stand out track from the Oklahoma quartet’s impressive third full-length. Perfect mix of new wave pop and garage fuzz rock.

BRONCHO – Wanna [from Double Vanity]

therange_potential-350

A sobering tale of love lost. “I’m slowly fallin’ out of love with you” is repeated throughout and it sounds like it’s the most difficult realization this person has ever had to make.

The Range – Falling Out of Phase [from Potential]
