Flight Facilities : Merimbula

Flight Facilities’ new album is flawless and ‘Merimbula’ is definitely one of the album highlights because apart from being a solid track, it’s also a slight departure from their signature sound. If you haven’t heard the album already, you need to get your hands on it immediately. Why?  Well, give this track a listen. It should be all the convincing you need.

Weezer : Waiting On You

So I spent all of yesterday binging on Weezer’s Pinkerton album, in the same way I binged on it in my dorm room back in 1996. Then I went through all the b-sides from Pinkerton, and they sound just as good as any of the songs on the original album.  ‘Waiting on You’ is like a 50′s Doo Wop song interpreted in classic Weezer fashion. The lyrics about heartbreak, the harmonies, the synthesizer, and of course the guitar lead – these are all staples of the Pinkerton era.

Dinosaur Pile-Up : Peninsula

Dinosaur Pile-Up is playing the NH7 Weekender festival this year in India, and I’m pretty bummed about missing it.  Apart from some of the other acts performing, I would love to see these guys perform live. Based solely on this music video for ‘Peninsula’ which is a compilation of their concert footage, I’m sure it’s going to be one kick ass performance.

Also, listen out for that guitar lead at 02:10 – it’s just plain awesome.

Caesars : Crackin Up

I’ve been listening to this song ever since my first year in college in 2002 and with each repeated listen, I realize more and more that it is the reverb in the chorus that keeps me coming back every time. The last time I listened to it I was on a 6 hour whale-watching boat ride in Sri Lanka. So I guess whether you’re in a dorm room, a boat, or an office, this track will always be appropriate.
