Summer Haze

I’ve been kind of getting into Dinosaur Jr. all over again the past year or two. It’s like a coming home moment every time I listen to them now. As a punk ass little skater tween, I listened to some Dinosaur Jr. Mainly because my older, cooler friends listened to them. Now when I put them on it gives me this hazy nostalgia for skating through the streets in the summertime.

New song’s got that good old school Dinosaur Jr. vibe..

I Want You to Know

And a new song by Woods take me to that same nostalgic place. It just uses a different route to get there. It’s a B-side off a new 7″. They also have a new album out called Songs of Shame. Pretty great new stuff.

Citizens of the Daydream Nation

The new self titled release from Wavves is the most recent entry into the budding category of indie rock dubbed lo-fi garage rock/fuzz punk/noise pop/etc. Whatever you want to call it, these young bands (including Wavves, No Age, Times New Viking, Vivian Girls, etc.) have a lot of raw talent and ideas. Perhaps being brought up on grunge music myself in the 90’s gives me the ability to appreciate these new misfits. Whatever the reason, I’m into them and eagerly anticipating what they have stored for us in the future.

Sample and enjoy…
