The year has been a bit quiet so far on new releases. I grabbed the new Tortoise record last week. Called "The Catastophist" its a pretty solid listen. I have to say the cover of "Rock On" is not really what I would have expected. It actually is the one song I tend to skip on the record for whatever reason.
Otherwise I've really been digging on the band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. I read about them in a magazine (yep still old school around here) and it was cool to dive in and check em out. They are really prolific, releasing 2 records a year at their current clip. Excited to hear new stuff, get in to it and then be ready for even more new stuff.
The good news is both Tortoise
and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
are making local area appearances. Both bands hit The Sinclair
in the next few months.
