I’m still waiting for Rademacher to make it to the East Coast, but in the meantime, Malcolm Sosa and his girlfriend Kim Haden (formerly with Light FM and now with Yellow Alex) have a new band they’re calling College Kids. They’ve just released their first song, “The Big Fresno Fair”; a sweet, funny, wistful ode to their hometown, delightfully reminiscent of Malcolm’s songwriting in Rademacher which I’ve known and loved for some time now. The song also features Blake Jones on Theremin. Their recording project is being produced by Josiah Mazzaschi (Light FM) and Sam McConnell (Breakfast Records) at their studios in Eagle Rock, The Cave and The Manor. This excellent track promises big things ahead.
If you’re in Los Angeles Monday night (Oct 25), you can see their debut live performance at Spaceland (they’re on at midnight). Oh, and by the way, this just so happens to be the final night of the Radars To The Sky month-long residency, which also features South Pasadena band Torches in Trees. This residency has been presented by KROQ Locals Only show and prominent L.A. music blog Web In Front.
My god, that’s a whole lot of information. Check out this awesome new band! And go see them, if you’re lucky enough to live or be in the area…
