Let us know what you’ll be listening to this New Music Friday!
The Used by Ian Zamorano / Sick Snaps
Bidding farewell to something that became a constant in life is never easy, but as with everything in life, nothing is guaranteed to last forever. The Vans Warped Tour is currently finishing its final cross-country run, and the impact that this tour has had on the alternative scene has become more transparent than ever.
Sunflower Bean by Sam Leung / Sick Snaps
New York’s Sunflower Bean played a night at the Crocodile in Seattle. The band’s live sound presented a much heavier and gritty sound than presented off their latest recording, Twentytwo in Blue. Their stage presence energized the crowd with bassist Julia Cumming’s call and response lyrics and guitarist Nick Kivlen’s 70’s tinged glam rock riffs. Their tour mates, the Paranoyds were just as fun, with bouncy raucous punk riffs and snarky lyrics.
