Light Years is a band in the wrong decade in all the best ways. Which is one of the reasons we’re so excited to have them as our band of the week. Expect an album review of their new EP ‘Temporary' to be published tomorrow, and a Flashback Friday later this week. 

For now, you can check out two new songs from the record. Listen to “Fall Apart" and "Temporary" after the cut.

Tiny Moving Parts - Pleasant Living (09/09)
It’s been very fun watching Tiny Moving Parts grow over the past year and a half. I use fun because that’s the adjective that pops into my head when I think about the band. Yes, their lyrics are often sad and their guitars are more than often twinkly, but in spirit, I know three fun dudes are coming up with great songs.

Tours with Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms, and soon Dads, sort of shape the band in a perfect mold between heavy hitting songs, but the kind that you want to make you happy, not sad.

I think I just created a new kind of emo. - Zack Zarrillo

The American Scene - Haze (09/09)
It’s been two years since The American Scene released the band’s sophomore album and I, for one, have been eagerly awaiting a follow up to the slow burning Safe For Now. And with fall around the corner, the time is right for a new release from the indie rockers: the band’s hazy tones and piercing vocals are the perfect pairing for those chilly nights. Haze is due out on September 9, and a number of tracks have already been released, including “Nails of Love,” “Royal Blue,” and “4th and Broadway.” Whereas the last album was beautifully deliberate and unhurried, these new tracks feature sweeping hooks and an invigorating haste. This is a band that I have long believed deserved far more attention than they’ve gotten, and I think they’re finally poised to make that happen. - Becky Kovach
