Middle Kids (via bandcamp)

Friday New Music 3/19

Do you ever think about how when it’s Friday, and you’re looking at the new music, that I’m looking at the same new music? Trippy. I’ve got a big handful of things to check out today, it’s a good week! Of course I’m obligated to check out the new Lana Del Rey which I’ll probably enjoy if it shares anything in common with the last one. There’s a new album from Australian rock band Middle Kids who rule but I’ve always felt are pretty underrated (at least by me) because of how they’ve confusingly released their albums.

Ghost of Vroom are dropping a full album, and I can’t help but be extremely excited for this. It sounds enough like Soul Coughing that I love it so much, can’t wait to hear all of these songs. There’s also a debut EP from En Garde, a punk band on Count Your Lucky Stars so I’ll definitely give them a listen.

Here’s a more complete list, taken from Consequence of Sound with some additions added by me. Tell me what’s good, what’s not good, what you’re excited for, what’s new, anything really. Enjoy!:
