Atlanta indie rockers Gringo Star released two new songs last week. You know what that means…there’s gonna be a new album next year! I’m excited because I absolutely loved the band’s last record THANK YER LUCK Y STARS. I was a bit troubled to learn that the band lost a member and are now just a three-piece, however the new songs are really great. Apparently the band’s been writing, recording, and producing all their new songs by themselves which is always intriguing.
The two new songs, “Going Way Out” and “Taller” are just as catchy and murky as the songs on THANK YER LUCKY STARS. I especially like “Going Way Out” which is a cross between a gloomy Dick Dale song and John Lennon’s “#9 Dream.”The band’s official website promises a new album in early 2013 and a tour! Hopefully they’ll swing by St. Louis so I can properly check them out.
