Many bands these days strike exclusives with websites to stream their songs before their album is released and this week Paramore released videos of their vinyl of their new album on YouTube. I love their introductions, mainly because they are a little awkward, but it makes them more real in my opinion. I mean have you ever met a band? Chances are they were a little weird and awkward.
Take a listen to the album below in parts A, B and C:
01:20 Fast in my car
09:18 Grow up
01:27 Moving On
02:55 Ain’t It Fun
07:51 Part II
12:33 Last Hope
01:52 Still Into You
07:49 Interlude: Holiday
12:10 Hate To See Your Heart Break
Just yesterday as I was taking 93.3 KTCL’s Music Survey I heard Paramore’s song Still Into You. I think that is my favorite out of them all, but I will be playing these videos back to back for the rest of the day. Sometimes you just need a little pop-punk in your life.
What’s your favorite Paramore song off of 4 Sides / 4 Nights?
This week I am featuring a song that I am currently *obsessed* with this Fall Out Boy song at the moment:
Plus the videos for My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark and The Phoenix make me excited to see what the rest of the album holds:
I have been a fan of Fall Out Boy for years and I am really excited that they decided to get back together and make this new album. So far I am digging the direction they are taking the band and hope this is just the first of many new albums from the band.
(Yes, I know that this song wasn’t released this week…but it takes me a few listens before I can really get into a song…this theme may continue.)
As you all know, our favorite local music event of the year in Denver has always been the UMS, or Underground Music Showcase as all of you non-goers probably call it. Every year the bands that perform this event are promising, it’s some of the most highly-anticipated 4 days of our entire summer. Monika and I have had years of fun at this event listening to music, going to as many shows as possible without trying to ruin our carefully scheduled plan, drinking with the bands, taking pictures in photo booths, and supporting our scene(as usual). We may have been busy for awhile but we’re getting back into the kick of things and this year: we’re beyond stoked for UMS. The first trickles of bands were announced earlier this month and it’s already giving us goosebumps from excitement. We’re happy and proud to announce that the first bands to be listed are:
I don’t know about you, but hearing that Mudhoney will be playing Denver’s own UMS just about made me have a heart attack. We more than encourage you to go and buy your passes while they’re still cheap! This event is worth every single penny that you spend on it, plus more. Check it out, happy listening, and we’ll see you guys around soon.

And Peelander-Z? Japanese Punk band that kind of resembles Power Rangers. I saw them at SXSW a few years ago, and it was definitely an entertaining show and I have to admit their songs, while they’re simple, are quite catchy.
Is Punk Rock not really your jam? Well there are a few other things tonight that I would check out.
Tonight marks the end of two other great Denver bands: Regret Night and Be Brave. They will both be playing at Summit Music Hall with another great local band, Places. If Pop Rock is more your thing, I’d head here tonight to play tribute to both bands.
Are you more into The Lumineers? Well, they aren’t in town, but the band that opened for them on their last tour has their CD release at the Oriental Theatre tonight! Paper Bird is releasing their new album and opening for them is He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister. I saw HMBSMS last year at the Larimer Lounge, and was so impressed! Mainly by the tap dancing drummer. You heard that right, the drummer tap dances on the bass drum! So fun to watch.
Lastly, not into music (why are you even here)? The Denver Auto Show is taking place in Denver all weekend. I’ll be there tomorrow checking out all the awesome new cars.
I’ve been a fan of Red Jumpsuit for quite some time now, but the band actually has even more special ties to this blog. Without them, Kaila and I might not have started Indiebitches.com because this was the very first concert we ever attended!
So take a listen to their new album, Et Tu, Brute for us:
Yes, I do like Taylor Swift. No, it isn’t very ‘indie’ of me. But I like Gary Lightbody even more than I like Taylor Swift. So when I heard they did a duet on her new album, I had to find it, immediately.
I think this song sounds more like Snowpatrol with backup vocals by Taylor, but I really like it! Take a listen for yourself.
What do you think? I haven’t bought Taylor’s new album, but I am definitely thinking about it. Especially because I love this song.
