I realize now that I somehow never wrote about the B-Grade University EP from Alex Lahey earlier this year. And that's a shame 'cause I loved that one. Well, now's my chance to make up for that mistake by raving about the new tunes coming our way from Alex Lahey.
The debut full-length album, I Love You Like A Brother, will be out on Dead Oceans on October 6, and the first taste of the record is the superb "Everyday's The Weekend", a single that's got a funny new video as you can see for yourself below. You can play that video underneath this and dig the Fountains of Wayne-meets-Liz Phair-vibe that Alex is throwing down here in this new tune. It's a superbly bright bit of power-pop business and a more direct version of the sort of tracks I liked so much on her earlier EP. I, for one, can't wait to hear the full-length record.
