Today is apparently the most depressing day of the year. Don’t know about you, but I feel OK. If you’re struggling though, Happy Birthday will perk you up. Sub Pop’s latest signings, the Vermont threesome sent us this rollicking garage pop blast ‘Girls FM’, a bouncy classic clocking in at three minutes exactly and whiffing ever so slightly of kitsch glam. Get it here (Right click and chose ‘save as’ if necessary. Please link-to don’t re-host)
Errors, meanwhile, are set to drop one of the albums of the year on March 1st. ‘Come Down With Me’ sees the Scottish glitch-freaks take their math-rock more post-rocky, influenced no doubt by genre godfathers Mogwai (whom they supported on tour last year). Get the Twilight Sad remix of ‘Bridge Or Cloud’ here.
A reminder of what we’re talking about here:
