Band Of The Week: The Movies

Local indie rock luminaries The Movies have been working on their new EP for some time... Former Mighty Lemon Drops member Dave Newton did production work on it, as he's done recently for The Little Ones, The Happy Hollows, The Blood Arm, and more, so expectations have been pretty high.

I've been lucky enough to hear many of the songs from the EP recently and am completely fucking in love with it right now.

If you've seen them play live recently, you've heard songs like When I Was In Nam, Missed Opportunities, and The Monumental Life, which are as strong as earlier favorites like Rock In The Slingshot and Timothy James. Then there's Limousine and Tired Of Being Superstitious, two uber pretty tracks that are up there with the band's classic heart churner Creation Lake (which The Silversun Pickups covered on their album, Pikul).

The group is headlining the Rock Against HD Benefit Show that we're helping put on -- it should go without saying that we're not making any money off of it -- where all the groups playing that night are performing new or unreleased material.

Details on the show, which takes place on Monday, December 10th at Safari Sam's, and the first chance to hear some of those new tracks can be found right here.
