To add to my list of favs for the summer Purity Ring released an amazing new single today; belispeak. This track will be released on a split 7” with Braids through Fat Possum on October 10th and will be available from both bands on tour in September. You can see them Labor Day Weekend (Sat, Sept 3) at FYF Fest!
There are no words… How did i just recently find out about DOO They are quickly becoming my fave. They just keep churning out jams.. Welp.. heres another one.
song by Ernie Brooks (Arthur’s Landing/Modern Lovers) + vocal by Steven Hall (Arthur’s Landing/Buddhist Army) + the trumpet stylings of James Duncan (Le Systeme/Kelley Polar) x Drop Out Orchestra = BIG FUN
~DOO’s rework sounds strangely familiar to Arthur Russell fans–the arrangement has echoes of TELL YOU TODAY (video link to original above) which is fitting because Steven sang and did the whistling on Arthur’s original track!
