Vancouver’s Mesa Luna has shared a free stream of ‘Ruins’ from their Crux EP, out this fall on tape through the ndb label, release date TBA.
The duo of Justice McLellan and Alex Cooper had this to say about the track; “‘Ruins’ expresses the frustration of having a communication breakdown with someone you love or once loved. It’s that constant back and forth that circles around and around late into the night with no resolution. Exhaustion is apparent in the verses that leads up to the self-realizing line “why do I keep hanging on”… The answer to that I don’t fully understand but it makes me think of the alluring nature of degraded places of another time. It’s easy to romanticize ruins and want to preserve them, whether it’s degenerating architecture or a failed relationship.”
David Newberry has shared the video for ‘Coyote’ from his third album Replacement Things.
Newberry is currently on the road in support of Replacement Things;
The EP is their first US release since 2011’s Money and Celebrity. The EP was recorded during their set at the Open Air Gampel festival by Swiss Radio and Television.
The Subways first appeared in 2005 when the then teenage trio released their debut album Young for Eternity and the single ‘Rock & Roll Queen’. They followed it with the Butch Vig-produced 2008 effort All or Nothing. The album was written during a trying time with bandmates Billy Lunn and Charlotte Cooper in the midst of a break-up and Lunn was fighting to save his voice after having nodules removed from his vocal chords.
The band’s 2011 effort Money and Celebrity was influenced by just that; celebrity culture and reckless spending.
The Subways have plans to return to the US for a tour in spring 2016.
