UPDATE: (from press release) “Rademacher, will be playing several dates in Southern and Central California during the month of April and will return to the studio to record the follow up to their full length debut, STUNTS…. The new record, titled BABY HAWK, will be engineered by Josiah Mazzachi (of Los Angeles band Light FM) at his Eagle Rock, CA studio, The Cave. The band will be releasing Baby Hawk on their own label, Hot Mess Magic, in three parts, with material being released digitally in June, August and a final and physical release slated for December of 2011.”
Two yummy treats from College Kids and Rademacher. Finally getting around to posting these. Enjoy.
College Kids – “Let’s Always Be Friends” (demo)[audio:http://www.bostonsurvivalguide.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/lets-always-be-friends-demo.mp3|titles=College Kids: “Let’s Always Be Friends” (demo)]
A solemn piano ballad with the loveliest of vocal harmonies and the most wistful of lyrics, courtesy of Malcolm Sosa and Kim Haden, that begins with the line “you said you’d never fuck me, so we just held hands, and I thought nothing could hurt me, so I said, let’s always be friends.” Ah man, classic. Sad-sweet sentiments from Mr. Sosa that I’ve come to know and love.
Rademacher – “Silver Lake” (demo)[audio:http://www.bostonsurvivalguide.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/silver-lake-demo.mp3|titles=Rademacher: “Silver Lake” (demo)]
Such a great sound. Some acoustic strumming, piano ballad, cool percussion, psychedelia… nice.
“When you’re hanging with the crowd that shouldn’t have been hung with
talking really loud, when you should have just been quiet…
some other time, some other place, a whole new dimension
it’s time for strange confessions.”
This just gets me more anxious for an actual album (according to their facebook page, it’s “on the horizon”). Hopefully an East Coast show as well. For now, though: 4/2 Big Sur, 4/4 San Diego, 4/5 Long Beach, 4/6 L.A. (Satellite aka Spaceland), 4/7 Fresno.
