Funny fact: I have posted 1,234 times on this blog. Until now that is. This post basically throws off the equilibrium of everything but since I've finally got a band to be super excited about, that's just how it is going to have to be. It's also a rainy crapola of a day here in NYC too, so any little burst of enthusiasm is a welcome caveat to my life. Today that burst comes courtesy of Allston, Massachusetts based band Young Adults, a trio of your typically scruffy young boys who create a pretty awesome storm of passionate noise rock.
Their music basically comes at you from all sides, simultaneously enveloping you in waves textured of sound while lulling you into a sweet melodic dream-like state of awesomeness. Personally, I can't wait to see them live as well since I have an inkling that their music translates even better in that environment (preferably somewhere dark, grungy and louuuuud, than it does on a recording.
Speaking of recordings, you can stream their LP on their bandcamp page right now, and if you want to rock your face off live, dates are posted below. Happy Monday!
