Sunday nights for me are filled with the dread of the coming Monday (and beginning of the new semester for my kiddos). I usually kick these Sunday blues by digging for new musica and this Sunday did NOT disappoint.
This Wednesday I will be in the presence of indie musical genius in the form of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Two Door Cinema Club and Tokyo Police Club (“club” is the new “wolf” for band names). Tokyo Police Club isn’t my motivation for going as you have to literally NEVER go to a show to avoid seeing them. They seem to tour with everyone and never, ever stop. I just saw them a few months ago with Passion Pit (amazeballs.) and they were… standard. Not bad or good, just… routine? I feel like they are a staple at just about any show I go to.
Well, it would seem I missed them on a tour with a band that I fell in love with last night, Ruby Coast (they were formed in 2006, so I am hoping “coast” isn’t the new “club”). They are fun and spunky and as an added bonus have a new album that you can scoop up for free. Weeee!
This video is from their earlier stuff but I love it all the same, and since it was the first I heard of them, it will hold a special little place in my musical heart. Listen and then go download the new album, “Whatever This Is” here… http://rubycoast.bandcamp.com/
