this week’s band was shown to me by my friend kamila awhile ago, but i’m just now posting about them now! cub from vancouver, british columbia. the song i posted is called “new york city” and it comes from their 1995 album come out come out. the main thing i really like about this band is that most of the choruses on this album have their drum beats using toms and almost no cymbals. the bass is really heavy in the mix too, so it sounds heavy, but at the same time the vocals and guitars are very cute sounding so you have this clash of pounding drums and bass with nice and pretty sounding guitars and vocals. i’m an absolute sucker for this sound, as most of my favorite bands do this kind of catchy yet heavy thing with their recordings. the reason i’m posting this song is because it’s immediately the first thing i think of when i go to new york, which i did a couple weeks ago on tour. there’s something nostalgic about it, i’m not sure, but it’s definitely something i associate with the city. as far as i can tell this record is sold out, but you could probably find it on discogs if you really wanted a copy.
