Notes From The New Release Show:
Today's post is an Off The Beaten Track approach to the new music of the week. Let's jump right in.
On the new, unfamiliar and edgy side of the show is a band from Down Under. They are Operator Please who are from, you guessed it, Australia. Gold Coast, Queensland to be more precise. They have fun punk pop sound as you can tell from their latest single “Zero Zero.” Right now this tune is only available to us here in the US via I-tunes Australia. Yes, you can switch your I-tunes store home. The possibilities are endless. I’ll go broke one song at a time. The new album, out next week is called YES YES VINDICTIVE.
“Marilyn Monroe” is the latest single from Walrus. They are a dirty little garage band also out of Australia. They are more simplistic in their description: “Walrus is a rock band…we play rock music.” That’s pretty straightforward. They have a new Double A Side Single with Funky Monkey/Marilyn Monroe. Both songs are available for download on their myspace page, which is myspace.com/walrusrock. I happened to like the latter tune and played “Marilyn Monroe.”
I will not be on next Tuesday...WTMD will be broadcasting Towson Men's Basketball. I will however listen and review what we get in this week, so I will be able to share with you on next week's blog. Until then...
