DOWNLOAD: The Information, "Alchemy In the Age of Science" (mp3)
Three things that bode well for the new EP by THE INFORMATION, as gleaned from the in-the-studio video they recently posted on their MySpace page: 1) They've got more guitars and they know how to use them; 2) The man behind the board is legendary producer Paul Kolderie (Weezer, Dresden Dolls, etc.); 3) When they go to the liquor store, they make for the Jack Daniel's. Those who remember the Info from their much-praised debut, Mistakes We Knew We Were Making, will by now be doing double takes. But believe it: here’s one Eggers-worshipping new-wave band who’ve learned how to rock. The EP, due soon, will be an Internet-only release, with a twist: show up at a gig with a fistful of bills and they’ll load it right onto your iPod, or for a few bucks more they’ll give it to you on a flash drive. Or you can do it the old-fashioned way and buy it on iTunes. Stay tuned to their MySpace page for details. Or do yourself a favor and catch them live at the Pill tomorrow (Friday, March 30) at Great Scott.
(Edit: due to a weird ID3 tag mishap, we mis-labeled the song. It's actually called "Alchemy In the Age of Science," not, as previously reported, "Back from the Dead.")
