I Know It’s Coming Someday
Longwave have currently caught my ear. Sorta new act out of New York City, they cop the churning guitar sound pioneered by the Chameleons and lately favoured by the likes of Interpol, but with less a less morose and anxious lyrical bent than their NYC kin. It’s quite lovely, actually. I’d been hearing about these guys for a while from NYC locals, who would say ‘screw the Strokes, THESE guys are the best band in NYC right now!’. They may have been on to something. The new album, ‘The Strangest Places’ is out in February. I need to find their last one, ‘Endsongs’. They were supposed to be in town next week supporting The Shining, but seeing as how The Shining has apparently broken up, that tour isn’t happening. Hopefully they’ll get their own show booked up here sooner rather than later.
Speaking of songs, I hauled the BR-532 down to the rehearsal space tonight and my little track now sports some stylish faux piano and trumpet, along with an adequate guitar solo over the intro. I don’t know if I’ll keep it, but it fills up the space right now. I’m going to have to start doing some bouncing so as to hear all of the parts together. I have an idea for the main solo that I’m anxious to try and see if it works. I should try it now before the fruit of inspiration whithers on the vine.
