Junior Astronomers - That's Why

| Keith
I found no meaning listening to these fools
All this work just gonna make me dull
That's why
Wasting my time
Listening to Amy
At least she's right

The first time I heard "That's Why" by Junior Astronomers I thought it was a track from an old Cribs album. Seriously. So it was a bit of a surprise to find out that it's a new track from a band from North Carolina. They've got a few EPs, a few singles, and a previous record, 2013's Dead Nostalgia, which is quite good. Lots of raw, old-timey (heh) indie rock edge whilst still being abundantly approachable. It's good stuff. I'm looking forward to hearing a bit more from them when their new album drops later on this spring.

Infinitefreefall - Beautiful People

| Kerri

Five steps away from you feels like an eternity
Something about you just says you won't get close to me
And i start to feel claustrophobic from everyone in my sight
It's like every single perfect person is in this city tonight 

All these beautiful people under these flashing lights
I swear i'll be one of them on one of these nights 

Stay alive til the weekend comes
Forget your name and fall in love
I want to be just like you 

I really like this song and have been waiting for a time to post it. It's ambient chill seems perfect for a Spring Sunday afternoon. I haven't been able to come up with much info about L.A.-based Maxton Stenstrom (aka infinitefreefall) so just sip your iced tea and listen.

PWR BTTM - Big Beautiful Day

| Keith
There are men in every town who live to bring you down
Make themselves feel bigger making you feel small
My advice is to look incredible
As you make their lives regrettable by being your damn self
God, it's so exhausting

I've sadly never seen performance art rockers PWR BTTM, despite a few chances over the last year. I'm really hoping I'll be able to jump on an opportunity soon. In the meantime I'll be enjoying their surprisingly Hüsker Dü-esque "Big Beautiful Day", and anthem to embracing the quirks that make us all unique and giving a big fat finger to the haters.

BONUS - the video. So much sparkle. :)
