what im listening to right now: truckstop darlin’s hope and the heart it breaks

Posted by gregor on Sunday, July 15th, 2012

again, one of those been sitting on for a bit now records. i had listened to the first song off portland’s truckstop darlin’s hope and the heart it breaks a couple months back then got sidetracked by im sure one of the kids needing to eat or some bullshit like that – i kid of course. anyway, ive set aside time tonight to listen to a bunch of stuff as the kids are pre-occupied with minecraft and a few other things. so, this will be my first proper listen of said record.

i dont know what the scene is like up in portland, but i would never have guessed this record came out of the pacific northwest. definitely sounds like a band out of southern alabama, or at very least maybe somewheresville, north carolina. for some reason they are really reminding me of arizona’s dead hot workshop, if youre familiar with them. im guessing most people outside of az, arent, but they were a great band. im only on track 4, “threats, bruises, flowers,” but im way into this record, i only hope it holds up over the course of the next 6 tracks. something tells me i am going to talk about this record again, cause i am guessing this could be a best of 2012 contender….

check out the site for upcoming shows and buy hope and the heart it breaks here.

i see you (315)
