Just give me the East Coast

Well it’s the end of the week, and I’m feeling really lazy… I’ve got an abnormal psych test and a contemporary sociology theory test next week…. I don’t want to study… And I’ve been thinking that it’s about time for an East Coast Power Pop revival… I mean… Why not right? It’s almost 2010, the 90’s can be revived! Anyway, the only reason I’ve been thinking about this is cause I’ve been on a huge east coast kick for the last month or so… It’s great rediscovering old favorites again and again! So for this post I’m just throwing down some videos I hope you all will enjoy! As for this post… Screw coffee, that can come next post again.

The Flashing Lights – Elevature ——— This is a great video from The FlashingLights solid solid debut album ‘Where the Change Is’. Did you know that the drummer is now playing for Elliott Brood?? kinda disappointing…

Sloan – Loosing California ——— From Sloan’s 1999 release ‘Between the Bridge’. This was the first tour I got to see Sloan = Super Rad —— From outside the doors of the venue…… fuck.

 

Cool Blue Halo – 52 Pickup —– Cool Blue Halo is relatively new to me, I didn’t get into them until last year. See what you think!

Eric’s Trip – My Room —– I never got to see Eric’s trip… or Elevator when they came through Lethbridge…. But I did see Julie Doiron play at The Slice… does that count for anything?

Sloan – People of the Sky — Great song from Twice Removed. This album was Sloan’s ‘clean up’ album. They really nailed down the hooky pop-rock they wanted. Before this album was Smeared, and is still my second or first favorite Sloan album.

Sloan – Penpals (live on Rita & Friends) —– Again, off Twice Remove.

Thrush Hermit – French Inhale —— From their EP ‘Smart Bomb’

The Super Friendz – Up and Running

 

The Flashing Lights – High School

Thrush Hermit – The Day we hit the Coast

 

Sloan – Chester the Molester and If It Feels Good Do It
