With the countdown to Dear Bo Jackson
at mere days (out April 30th), it's time to celebrate The Weeks stopgap EP, Gutter Gaunt Gangster
, that reintroduced the band in 2012, four years after their promising debut, Comeback Cadillac
. We already proclaimed "The House That We Grew Up In"
the song of the summer, but sadly that won't get a third go round on the new album. Nor will "Slave to The South", a mournful ballad that seems to celebrate a life that can only be embraced by leaving it behind.
I'd like to give Dear Bo Jackson
Teenage Kicks highest rating... two ears open. It's out this Tuesday and you should buy it.
