Oh, hello. Here’s a new-music dump for your hump day listening pleasure.
Easter Island’s new 7-inch single, whose release the band will celebrate with a show Sept. 21 at the Georgia Theatre, is a continuation of the sleek, moody music that filled last year’s full-length, Frightened. The two tunes here, “Dinosaur” and “Drift,” boast a more propulsive, individualistic sound.
Rene LeConte’s (Joe Kubler) Young & Dumb is an exciting first outing from the nascent project, a delirious, keyboard-heavy, surprisingly well-formed trip of a record.
Franco Funicello’s Call For a Good Time is an enjoyable, if somewhat eccentric, throwback album that incorporates the trashy, thrashy jangle of late-’80s SST and late-’90s Modest Mouse.
