Madison weather remembered it is the middle of April, and finally stopped keeping the temperature in the 30’s. There is no better way to celebrate than opening your windows, listening to the steady dripping of rain drops, and then turning up your speakers to LOUD and blasting punk rock. Show nature who is boss. She can’t do anything now, it’s spring. People usually assume “oh it’s so purty outside, lemme just put on dis quiet, pretty Bon Iver song on and then take a nap.” No. Stop that. You need to drive cars at high speeds (only five miles above speed limit. Safety!) and jump around excessively.
“But,” you might argue, “all of the songs I listen to never exceed noise levels around the same volume as a solitary singing bird!” Well then listen to Glocca Morra, who’s music makes me want to run around outside and yell. According to their Facebook page, there are four guys in the band; their names are Zack, Arik, Nate, and JP. They happened to make two of my favorite albums from last year with their LP Just Married and their EP An Obscure Moon Lighting An Obscure World. It’s on their bandcamp.
I have no idea how to describe what they sound like, but they make some of the best indie/punk/rock/whatever music on the planet. And they pass through Chicago on the twentieth, so if anyone wants to give me a ride…
