Meg Myers is the shit. Only one month left until her second album. I already PO’d the color variant.

Yep, those Weezer vibes are strong. Seems like a couple years ago there were lots of bands (in a certain circle of DIY music) really drawing heavily on Weezer. Not a bad thing at all but this got me thinking I haven’t heard that style of rock in a while. Maybe the scene got Weezered out, or I haven’t been interacting with those circles as much. But it’s nice hearing that style again, especially blending it with some electronic elements.

Keeping the thread rolling, here’s a band from Japan I’ve been really tripping on lately. Maybe not the best place to start with their music, but this song in particular I’ve been obsessed with. The somewhat off-kilter rhythm, the blend of clean and distorted guitars, those ringing open strings, and Noah (yes, it’s a woman)'s voice, all meshing together to create this tune. Here it’s like the bass and drums are the lead instruments. Honestly I’ve been thinking about writing a song similar to this.

Totally I know what you mean there was return to the weezer/Gin Blossom type of guitar sound and layering even the distortion and mixes,I had no complaints maybe because it takes me back to when I first really got into music as a kid.Its funny how to this day I haven’t kept up with weezer since the green album,but I still think they can crank out another classic like a blue/Pinkerton return to form,Rivers went nuts making an encyclopedia of pop songs and chords and I guess he wanted to stick to the formula and move units who knows it’s not a bad thing but he was formerly a speed metal player.crazy.
Dude I had to listen a few times,every instrument took me on a seperate trip and the rhythm would go then comeback wow that was awesomely done.Maybe you’ll dig this it’s by the velvet teen they deserved so much more love and attention amazing band.
It’s a well done fan made video for gyzymkid by the velvet teen
