I have been stupid busy this month. With school and spring break cluttering my mind its been hard to sit down and think about music. Luckily spring time is beset with new albums. I’ve been rocking out to the latest from The Ting Tings entitled Sounds From Nowheresville. Just a heads up, its pretty great.
I’m back baby!! Early March is always a very hard time for me because my day job revolves around college basketball and we all know how distracting March Madness can be . After a week and a half on the road, my mind is packed full of ideas on artists to write about. So before my head explodes I have to tell you all about La Sera.
Le Sera is a project by Katy Goodman (Vivian Girls, All Saints Day) and she is set to release Sees the Light, a follow-up to last year’s self titled album, on March 27th. Usually “side projects” don’t get past the first album, so that should be a great indication to you that the new work has got to be worth a listen.
Good news everyone! One of On The Couch’s favorite bands, Best Coast has a brand spanking new album in the works. The new album, entitled The Only Place, is set to drop on May 14th. Other details are scant. But I was able to get my hands on the official track listing. This is truly something to get excited about.
Every time I hear a new Radiohead song I have a religious awakening. It’s like finding out there really is a Santa Clause. Radiohead has been playing two new songs during their tour for King Of Limbs. No word yet if these new songs, entitled “Identikit” and “Cut a Hole,” will be included in their next album or an EP. Take a listen they sound pretty great. I can’t wait to hear them on an album!
