LISTEN: BANKS’ ‘BEGGIN FOR THREAD’
BANKS’ upcoming debut album, Goddess, is one of our most anticipated albums of this year, and the suspense for it has grown with each new single we’ve heard. First there was the smooth, moody Brain, then the muffled stadium roar of Drowning, and then the bursting title track.
Beggin For Thread keeps the winning streak going, and it’s BANKS’ brightest effort yet. The track has a playful kind of swagger absent from the other, more emotive tracks, but it’s still the kind of missive on love (or lack thereof) that we’ve come to expect from BANKS. Listen below.
A NEW WEEZER TRACK, YOU SAY?
"Back To The Shack is the first new Weezer song we’ve heard since 2010, and it comes off their upcoming album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End. It’s a perfectly fine slice of alt-rock with Rivers Cuomo sounding cynical as ever, making fun of disco while remaining self-deprecating. It’s the same old Weezer, pretty much. We only wonder if the album is not going to sound that great given the sole fact that The Green Album and Maladroit already exist.
