Great American Canyon Band – “Crash” (Live) // Julieanne Kost

I’m not usually interested in live versions of songs I already love but Great American Canyon Band has changed “Crash” so much that I can’t help but get swept up in the calmer stripped back vibe here.

Listen to the original in my post here.

SUPERCITY sure DON’T need YOU to approve or CARE to dive into some killer riffage

“Lost At Sea” is from 2015’s Crash EP whose title track is also on the full length LP Only You Remain which comes out today.

Future Islands always feel a bit tropical yet somehow rooted in a weightier world then their trend-riding indie-tropica peers. Maybe that’s what island life will be like in the futu… oh. I get it. Nice.
