The Tryout: Various Cruelties
I've been slacking when it comes to the Tryout as I don't think I've had one in a couple weeks. The blog itself has been inconsistent at best and I'm going to try to fix that. I'm still trying to get myself into a groove and regular schedule but my addiction to sleep and debilitating laziness has kept me from doing much of anything besides eating pizza and gaining weight. Well, there's been some drinking in there as well but I'm only counting the things I can consistently remember doing the next morning.
Anyway, this week's Tryout is a new band called Various Cruelties. They're just getting started out and have a bluesier Phoenix-ish sound (Although the more I think about it, I'm not loving the Phoenix comparison). I'm liking what I'm hearing so far. It should be interesting to see what they come out with next or when their full album finally drops.
And leave it to Radiohead to put out a new song seconds after I post my Tryout. Anyway, here's a bonus clip, the new song Staircase from the upcoming "From the Basement".
But back to Various Cruelties, here are a couple of their other songs (they only have released four so head to their site to check out the one that I didn't post and like them on Facebook. Help support indie music!
