[song] Mozart Estate – Relative Poverty

At the beginning of next year, the legendary musician Lawrence (Felt, Denim, Go-Kart Mozart) will return with his new album under the moniker Mozart Estate. Titled Pop-Up! Ker-Ching! And The Possibilities Of Modern Shopping, it is set for release on January 27 through Cherry Red Records.

The album would include two new songs “Record Store Day” and “Relative Poverty”, which were also out on a limited edition 10″ Vinyl. Both of them are real smashing pop hits, and the second one is a fan favorite and also the highlight of the group’s live set, so it is very cool to get a fresh studio recording of it!

Make sure to check out the official video for it as well, which was directed by Douglas Hart and Valerie Phillips. And also browse the new Lawrence Land store, which has some truly awesome stuff there, like an essential Lookin’ For Lawrence package for fans and some cool T-Shirts.

[album] Sonic Hawkins – Muscle Beach

It is very nice to stumble upon a real gem by the end of the year. This is exactly what the debut LP by Sonic Hawkins (a solo project of Darrell Hawkins, ex-Wild Palms guitarist) is.

Titled Muscle Beach, it is a brilliant collection of 10 ultra-hooky tracks, framed with distortion, dance punk sensibilities and unstoppable energy. This album will get you in the groove with its guitar riffs alongside cracking basslines and infectious spirit.
