On the Horizon

I just heard the song "Do It Better", by Imperial Teen, on the radio. It's from their new album The Hair the TV the Baby and the Band, which comes out on 8/21. Good song. They sound a little like the New Pornographers to me. One of their founders was a member of Faith No More. Potsy has a Faith No More shirt from the 1990s. In addition to Faith No More, Potsy has confessed to liking Collective Soul, Live, Counting Crows and other shitty bands from the 90s. I know he also liked Tracy Chapman.

Jesus Christ, I feel dirty having just typed those last two sentences. He can chalk it up to youthful indiscretions but that argument didn't fly during the Nuremberg war crimes trials and it won't fly now.

Check their MySpace page, there's a few other tracks there. "Ivanka" (2002) is also good.

I don't see a stop in DC on their tour calendar but we should keep an eye out nonetheless.

Here's a video from 1999, "Yoohoo":
