The new year is a couple weeks away, but I'm anxious to start 2014 so I can soak in a handful of forthcoming albums including one from Shawn Rosenblatt's Netherfriends
. The constantly touring Chicago indie-popper is set to drop the album in March, and last week he debuted a new single, "Joey Vision." It's an irresistibly hooky, propulsive track made with a tight psych-guitar riff, and it's today's 12 O'Clock Track
. The track also appears on a new P3ACE
primer EP called, um, 3P
, which also includes the equally great "Uptown Boys" and "Birthday." If you're in the mood for some seriously addictive pop tracks and you're also in need of a new shirt I recommend nabbing 3P from Bandcamp
; it's $10 and comes with a "Joey Vision" T-shirt, which superimposes Peter Saville's cover art for Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures
atop a hand with three fingers splayed upwards to look like it's giving a peace sign with an extra digit. Take a listen to "Joey Vision" below.
