On their newest song "Answer My Text", PWR BTTM faces an everyday problem: modern day dating. Lev Bruce tackles the everyday anxiety, and humiliation of waiting for your crush to text back.
Blurting out what we all are thinking "ANSWER MY TEXT, YOU DICK", Bruce's wave of emotional vocals and drummer, Ben Hopkins' frenzied drumming creates a level of rage which leaves you with a sense of familiarity of anticipation.

It's been years since Clap Your Hands Say Yeah became music sensations with the help of the internet and music blog, Now, releasing their fifth full-length album, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah returns with The Tourist, Which might be their most appalling record yet.
The Tourist picks up right where they left off in 2014, when they released Only Run. Executing The Talking Head-esque, early CYHSY's work. Alec Ounsworth voice, mixes with a blend of synthesizers, harmonicas, guitars, and stacks of effects in such foolproof way,
Ounsworth, suggests that this album represents a low-point of his life, the imagery of each track - such as, "Fireproof" laminating "what a drag it is to win" - shows it. The Tourist is intense, emotional, and incredibly dark, it highlights the level of creativity that keeps music careers going longer than anyone could imagine.

It takes a lot for a band to catch my eye, but Minnesota local band, Happy Children, are one of those few that do just that. With a sound and style that is accurately represented by their name it is incredibly easy to fall for these Minnesota boys. Listen to their EP, Small Talk, and their newest single, "All Wrong." Keep an eye out as I see big things coming for this young group..
