Weymouth-based indie label Aurora 7 Records follows up last year’s Girlfriends “Gov’t Seizure” seven-inch with three new tracks on wax from THICK SHAKES. Although hard copies of Why Buy the Cow won’t hit the spinning wheels of dingy nightclubs and bedroom dance parties till spring, this collection of blurry garage-rock racket has already invaded Bandcamp.
Hat tip to the very underrated Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald, who reports this afternoon that the new record from THE CARS will be titled "Move Like This" and released on Tuesday, May 10. He also reports that the first single, "Sad Song," should hit radio sometime next month, so I'm already in the car on the way to Lynn to campout in the FNX studios and wait for it. The postman still delivers albums, right?

Yes, it’s shit-central outside, an icy mess of dirty slush and Masshole road rage that’s keeping most sensible folks locked indoors. Thankfully, RYAN LEE CROSBY and MR. SISTER'S AMELIA EMMET are intent on keeping our ears warm and busy throughout the month, giving us some covers to hide under.
DOM's sound is so next-wave post-everything, the darling Worcester buzz band have now taken to wearing blurred-out t-shirts in their press photos. But uhh, so what's really underneath this primal concrete smudge shown above?
It's a Pantera shirt!
Talk about a vulgar display of censorship. What does Dom's new label Astralwerks, which re-releases the still-awesome Sun Bronzed Greek Gods EP on February 15, have against Pantera?
