The holidays are over, the memory of New Year’s Eve exists only in hazy party photos, and now Boston is left with a winter wasteland of dirty slush, towering snowbanks and freezing cold-floor mornings spent trying to extract yourself from the maternal-cocoon shelter of your Star Wars bedsheets. But springtime is a state of mind, and the warm sunshine-pop glide of MOUNT PERU'S “Summer Jinx” is already giving us daydreams of care-free beach trips and flip-flops and lost weekends on the Cape -- a top-down joyride number that shows off the sunnier side of alt-Americana Mount Peru. As we mentioned last week, tonight’s (January 6) album-release party for My Sweetheart the Destroyer kicks off the local-release season, a tight indie bill that also features Mr. Sister, MEandJOANCOLLINS and The Points North. Keep warm with the “Summer Jinx” mp3, available for free download off thephoenix.com/onthedownload.
