SPORTS PLAYLIST

“I can’t believe Mercer beat Duke! A 11 seed beating a 3 seed? I had Blue Devils going all the way to the Final Four! My bracket is ruined!”

If you can’t read the above sentence, we have bad news. You can’t sports. Don’t worry! This means you haven’t succumbed to March Madness. Unfortunately, we have bad news again. Everyone will think you’re an ignorant hipster until March Madness is over. Don’t worry again! The Impact’s music experts have handcrafted a Rosetta Stone of sorts that will translate your useless skill of liking good music into the totally useful skill of being able to talk about sports with other people! Sing along to the music, and watch your sports knowledge grow!

Album Review: La Dispute – Rooms of the House

A friend of mine at West Point recently told me a helpful bit of military advice: don’t get fancy. What he meant was that all up-and-coming tacticians are first taught to learn basic military strategies; otherwise they will make disastrous calls in the interests of devising what they believe to be an ingenious plan. It’s advice that can be applied to many aspects of life, with music possibly being the best place for this concept to settle. Anyone who’s suffered through countless “progressive” or “post-whatever” albums will know that far too many bands, usually young and inexperienced ones, will strive to be unique or unconventional before grasping the basics of how to write a song, which then leads to a derivate, boring, album that doesn’t develop any of the band’s ideas, interesting as they may be when first conceived. La Dispute used to be one such band.

Potty Mouth – Black and Studs

Get introduced to Potty Mouth in their video for “Black and Studs.” The band just played with Vivian Girls at their last show EVER earlier this month. Definitely keep them on your radar. You can get a copy of their first LP, Hell Bent on pink vinyl at Big Cartel.

Thee Oh Sees – The Lens

If you haven’t heard, Thee Oh Sees went on a short-lived “hiatus” while John Dwyer moved to L.A. Fortunately, they recently announced they would be releasing a new album, Drop, April 19th. Our Jam of the Day is “The Lens” a track from the upcoming album on Dwyer’s label, Castle Face. Get ready to enter an animated tripped out dream utopia.

The Coathangers – Follow Me

Something about this new video from The Coathangers that just isn’t quite right, but I can’t put my finger on it…. You can grab their new album, Suck My Shirt at The Lager House when they play with Audacity, April 13th.
