From their 2012 album in progress Blah Blah Love and War, please enjoy Los Angeles indie pop-rockers The Rescues and their charmingly melodic, and charmingly sort of low-fi, ode to unwarranted optimism, "Everything's Gonna Be Better Next Year."
Wow. That's just cute as the proverbial bugs ear, IMHO.
I should confess that these kids were heretofore unknown to me -- hey, what can I tell you, I don't watch Grey's Anatomy (on which their music has been frequently showcased) -- but apparently they released a previous album on a major label. The relationship with said major label, however, seems to have been less than felicitous; I'm not saying the phrase "record company weasels" is necessarily pertinent, but I'm not saying it isn't, either.
In any case, after parting company with said major label, the Rescues have regrouped and are now doing it, as was said about sisters, for themselves.
As -- I suspect -- nature intended all along, and good for them.
If you want to help them, go over to their pledge page and give 'em some love.
And tell 'em PowerPop sent you.
