You Blew It! – “Lanai”

You Blew It! are having very productive 2014. In January, they released their second full-length LP Keep Doing What You’re Doing, an album that I reviewed and loved. Then in August, they dropped an EP of covers celebrating the 20th anniversary of Weezer’s The Blue Album. Today the band gave fans an early Christmahanakwanzika present. The Orlando foursome teased their upcoming EP Pioneer of Nothing with the release of “Lanai.” Here, the song remains the same: sugary guitar riffs, a groovin’ bass line, and Tanner’s emotive lyricism. Enjoy.

A Great Big Pile of Leaves

AGBPOL are riding hot after the re-release of their 2010 album, Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?. In the past, they’ve toured with Orlando act You Blew It!, a longtime live favorite, but I haven’t yet gotten the chance to see AGBPOL live. Look at this gorgeous limited edition vinyl. You just want to lick it.

Hear the whole album at AGBPOL’s Soundcloud!

 Diamond Youth

In February, Baltimore boys Diamond Youth released their second EP Shake. “Can’t Shake the Feeling” is a particularly rad song from the EP, but don’t take my word for it, listen to the whole thing!

Prawn

New Jersey folk Prawn have a couple releases of their own, most notably their two LPs with Topshelf, 2011’s You Can Just Leave It All  and 2012’s Ships. “Why You Always Leave A Note” is off their 2014 split with Joie De Vivre.

Hear more from Prawn on Spotify.

Field Mouse

Field Mouse is destined to be the pleasant wildcard of the evening. They’re a bit different from the other acts, but their different is refreshing. Listen to the swirling synths and sweat vocal melodies off the band’s July 2014 release, Hold Still Life.

Hear all of Hold Still Life on Field Mouse’s Soundcloud.

You Blew It! to release Weezer cover EP, “You Blue It” on 7/15

Still riding the wave of popularity behind their sophomore album, Orlando natives You Blew It! are set to release an EP of choice Weezer cuts from the band’s 1994 album, Weezer (The Blue Album). Two songs, “My Name is Jonas” and “Surf Wax America,” have already helped build anticipation for the EP. You can pre-order You Blue It over at Topshelf Records. Good job boys. Brilliant pun. Enjoy.
