So let me tell you about something amazing.
I recently asked my roommate to load my pink thumb drive up with some new music.
Yay! More punk rock!
It was funny that he gave me a couple albums I already have, like Something Corporate’s “Leaving Through the Window” and Such Gold’s “Pedestals”. Such Gold is actually a local band I’ve liked for a good long time. One of my friend’s used to be really close to the drummer and back in 2010 the three of us drove down to Philly on the morning of the 4th of July to go see The Roots and the Goo Goo Dolls play a huge (HUGE) free show.
Apparently it was part of the Wawa Welcome America! Festival or something, no idea, I only cared that I was seeing the Goo Goo Dolls, for free, in Philadelphia, on the 4th of July. And ‘seeing’ is a loose word since the closest we got was still probably 1,000 feet from the stage.
Yes guys, we did know you had to play this one.
So ANYways, one of those little thumb drive albums was “Talon of the Hawk” by The Front Bottoms.
I think I’m in love.
The record kicks off with“Au Revoir (Adios)” a super fun super mean breakup song. Their song “Skeleton” is an ode to reefer, “an herb-inspired rock song that’s just begging to become a sing-along staple at their live shows.” And I dear god to I hope to do so because they’re coming to Rochester on the 19th!!!
Personally I can’t stop listening to the album over and over and over.
For now, I’m tired. I leave you with one of the songs I keep screaming along with.
