The Sounds could very well be next in the line of grrl rockers like Sleater Kinney or Veruca Salt. Their new album, Dying to Say This to You, comes out sometime around March, I believe.
MP3: The Sounds – Song With a Mission
Aside from having an intro identical to ‘Nobody But Me’ (you know, the song that plays during the breakdancing scene in Kill Bill?), this song’s not too bad. It’s like MTV wanted to make up for the fact that they didn’t give Sleatery Kinney enough coverage back in the day, so they prayed for a band that sounds like SK used to. The Sounds were the answer to their prayers. All kidding aside, it’s a good song. Rocking female vocals and some nice guitarwork are really all you need for some great grrl rock.
So I know that’s it’s highly unlikely that anyone is reading YANP and watching the Superbowl, but on the off chance that someone is – what do you think of the commercials? If I might confess, I’m watching it mostly for the commercials and it looks like a decent crop this year. I loved the ‘magic fridge’ and ‘bear attack’ beer ads. Priceless.
