No Blind Spots In the Leopard’s Eyes

Now that the 90’s are a decade away, let the nostalgia trip commence. I mean that in a good way, at least for now. I kind of miss the days of actually looking forward to an album release by the likes of Pavement, Sebadoh, Build To Spill, or Number One Cup. I also miss being in college and not getting up before 10 am, procrastinating, and wasting time hanging out at the radio station.
Bringing all of those memories back in the rush of a 3 minute pop song are Edmonton, Canada’s Outdoor Miners who have just released their first single on Pop Echo.  It’s three songs with fuzzed out guitars, slacker choruses and no filler.  No kidding, all three songs on this single bring instant pop goodness.  If the coming 90’s nostalgia trip involves killer stuff like this, count me in!

      Thanks Jesse, positive reinforcement is always a good thing. If I don’t get any, I may start writing about Coldplay or something.
