We at Holly House are very excited. Caitlin Rose’s debut LP Own Side Now finally has a set UK release date of August 24, 2010.
So, that means you want to go ahead and reserve your copy right? Right. Hop on over to Rough Trade or Amazon to pre-order your copy now because you want to be the first on your block with the LP right? Right.
We’ll post a MP3 of this delicious record once it’s been released, so keep an eye out folks!
A few weeks ago I got turned on to a great band from Vancouver BC, The Good News. The lead singer reminds me of Craig Finn from The Hold Steady while the music is some solid kick ass pop. Driving songs with super hooky choruses are just a couple of this group’s strengths.
Here are a couple of my favorite songs:
The Good News – Backstage Underage
The Good News – It’s Too Soon To Call
Hopefully I’ll be able to catch one of their shows when I’m in Vancouver later this summer.
(ps While looking for a pic of the band, I came across this blog post which had posted the same songs as I have here. Funny and coincidental, but I swear I picked these out of the 2 EPs I got. I guess we just have similar taste :) The video I did find there.)
