One time I heard someone on the internet call Dawes the best band in the world.
Hey, look! A new Mac Demarco album. Officially a mini-LP, whatever that means.
The fourth LP from Sweden's singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson. Wikipedia doesn't tell me how tall he actually is.
A series of remarkable occurances: 1) The Sonics still exist 50 years after their mid-'60s garage rock heyday; 2) they played a sold out 2014 show at First Ave; 3) thanks to a drive-time push on the Current, it was attended by mostly 20-somethings; it rocked; even when they started with, "now here's a new one from our upcoming album" is still rocked; the new album rocks; seriously, these guys are in their 70s; everything I've said is true, even if it sounds like some kind of magical, wonderful dream.
