Rock Charts – Last Week of May

It may have been a three day weekend but the charts never stop! This week we played Thee Oh Sees endlessly and Perfect Pussy had a huge bump in air-play. I think it’s cause our DJ’s are all really excited for their show in Santa Cruz this week.

Gold-Bears new album is some really fun, catchy pop rock off of Slumberland records. The record, entitled Dalliance, is a very logical addition to the Slumberland line up. It’s got great fuzzy, punky guitars with sweet pop-y vocals thrown on top. It goes well as a kind of lighter cousin of the some of the other bands on the Slumberland roster, like Terry Malts or Joanna Gruesome. The album comes out June 3rd, but you’ll likely hear it over the KZSC airwaves throughout this week. I really dig this record. It’s definitely worth checking out!

Here’s a song off of it called For You:
