“Every season needs a soundtrack. Think of sun-washed jeans and sandy dunes: summer is coming. And Holidays - Giaky, Ale, Luca and Simone - are ready to catch stars and sunshines and bottle it for every dream-pop come shoegaze fan. Their debut album “Young Love” (Lp available on KIY Records) is a reverb-drenched 10-track gem of surfy pop with influences ranging from Wild Nothing and Beach Fossils to Real Estate and The Drums. Just what you need to relax by the sea.” You can stream Young Love on bandcamp along with their prior single “Red Tie” and the 7” Believe.

If you Want to get shit done you need to both embarrass this government and make them take notice. A hunger strike on the steps of parliament. Fake bomb threats. You have to resist. If they do not listen with a march find a new way. Follow the great revolutionaries of our time. Gandhi knew how to get shit done. And so did Che Guevara. Not saying we should start a guerrilla war. Find meaningful resistance. but you also have to accept the consequences that you probably will be arrested and end up in jail. Because the police are not out to protect us but to protect the government.
Its the end of the week already and I’m avoiding doing my assignment but posting my pick of free albums for this week. So many choices but I’m listening to this right now and like it. Good lo-fi indie pop songs.
