Math and Physics Club – Long Drag 7″

mathphysics

Math and Physics Club was a big fave of mine some years ago. Since then I’ve kind of lost touch with the band and also with indie pop in general. This has nothing do with the current quality of either of them. My interests have just drifted towards things like country, folk, R&B. Long Drag, the marvellous new single by Math and Physics Club is a welcome reminder that there’s still place in my heart for this lovely band. It’s an outtake from their upcoming album Our Hearts Beat Out Loud and it was released by the greatest indie pop label Matinee Recordings. This one below is Long Drag and it’s oh so good.

Jeremy Squires release a new single Oblivious

jeremysquiresob

These days I’m usually slow with the updates and most of the news I write are actually old news by the time I actually write them. But thankfully there are still some things that I’m so passionate about that I have to mention them instantly. North Carolinian singer-songwriter Jeremy Squires fall into this category. Like I’ve said before, I’m more than mildly obsessed with his Central Nervous Station EP and I still listen to it if not daily than at least on weekly basis. Today Jeremy Squires released his excellent new single Oblivious. It’s an outtake from his upcoming album When Will You Go, due out in October. I’ve listened to it one, two, three.. no wait.. probably around twenty times. If you want to follow my path, hit that play button below and/or buy the single from iTunes, Bandcamp. When Will You Go is going to be a treasure. I can hardly wait.

The Heavy Blinkers to release Health on July 30th

HeavyBlinkersHealth

Finally. This is worth of a parade of some sort. Health by The Heavy Blinkers is ready and will be released on 30th of July. I’ve been waiting this one for years and at times it almost felt like this album is just a beautiful myth and I will never have the chance to actually hear it. Thankfully after 7-8 years in the making, the Canadian masters of orchestrated pop music, The Heavy Blinkers have finally finished this epic album and the first outtake from Health surfaced today. The song is called Perfect Tourists and I’ve been listening to it all day long. By some miracle, it actually easily lives up to the out-of-this world expectations I have for Health. This is Perfect Tourists.

 
Did I already tell you that this band is very dear to me. Our love affair started when I heard their previous album The Night and I Are Still So Young when it came out back in 2004. It was not the happiest time of my life, but the harmonic beauty of this album always managed to shoot a rope arrow into the sun and drag it back into my sight, if it tried to drift away behind the corner. Later on I bought the back catalogue and during the time myspace ruled the social media, I noticed that Jason Michael MacIsaac had a great taste in music. I always try to find new music to love and cherish and Jason recommended a lot of good stuff at myspace during those days. So in some very minor scale, he was a like pop mentor to me at the time. Just like people like Duglas T. Stewart of the BMX Bandits have been. I can’t remember did I found the great and way too uknown Ilona V through Jason, but I remember that he was also very much into her music. If I did found her through Jason, I’m grateful. Anyway, this is getting way too long and personal. Let’s close this post with the title track of the album The Night and I Are Still So Young. More about the mythical Health when it comes out.
