The Dears - Listen & Watch Two New Songs
I think it'd be a mistake to count The Dears out. While the three disc run of No Cities Left to Gang Of Losers to Missiles is undoubtedly strong, I'll admit to liking each one a bit less than the one that came before it. Much has been made of Murray Lightburn's temperament and the seemingly non-stop revolving door of a lineup that supports him and wife Natalia Yanchak. You'd probably be forgiven if you wagered that a total meltdown would be inevitable if not imminent.
Happy to report then that the first two tracks from the forthcoming Degeneration Street (via Dangerbird, February 15th) are indeed, first rate. Sample "Blood" and first single "Omega Dog" while watching performance videos of each. The band has already been announced to perform at SXSW in March. Can't wait!
