top of the morning. hope everyone had a great weeks end! knowing i had a 4 day weekend ahead of me made waking up this morning a little easier. if you havent already, please do check out that video below.
twitter is strange. either you’re into it, or you’re not. i dont think there is anyone on the fence about it. admittedly, i like it a lot cause it suits my waning attention span fairly well. i get a lot of bands that follow me and if i dont follow back within a few days, i get unfollowed and thats fine. or maybe they just dont care for my schtick, whatever that maybe? one dude that has hung in, and who seems like a decent fellow is archie powell and his band of chicagoans, archie powell and the exports. we’ve been mutually following each other for a few months now, and just now am listening to their goods. and by goods i mean their free ep, loose change. like i said archie and his fellow exports seemed like enough dudes, but that doesnt always translate into making something i wanna even listen to or halfheartedly recommend. so, since im writing about it, you can assume its good, and even more its actually really good. it would be good even if it werent free, meaning i would pay for it. its a little bit a.m. era wilco, a little westerberg, and maybe even a little bit like ted leo’s more poppy side. whatever it is, its good and more than worthy of wasting your precious bandwidth on.
download the loose change ep via their bandcamp site.
