Low Horizon: Four Songs too Long

Houston, TX lo-fi quartet Low Horizon got a good thing going on their new Four Songs too Long, a blend of noise, garage and grunge rock. Imagine Weezer having a party with the Pixies, Yo La Tengo and Prints Jackson.

The lyrics are pretty dark, but even songs 40//Death and Funeral (with Fleetwood inspired vocal harmonies) can't hide the fact that is a bunch of uplifting songs, thanks to the catchy backbeat and jangling guitars.

Little Triggers: Silly Cigarettes

Liverpool poppy rock band Little Triggers have been listening closely to that other Merseyside quartet and topped it off with some Britpop for their new single Silly Cigarettes. Ennui, girl trouble, and a short guitar solo before they hit the brakes to bring the song to a premature ending. What the fuck just happened? Better listen to it again.
