What better way to spend St. Patrick’s Day than with a nice cold cock. Er, wait … our Critic’s Pick for the necrophilia convention is next week. What we meant to say was that there’s really no better way to celebrate The Irish New Year than with a nice cold beer and local noise-poppin’ prog-punk outfit Coldcock. (Please excuse our Freudian slip — obviously our minds are on other, less savory things.) Anyhoo, Coldcock — a trio featuring Dave Dawson, Dean Bratcher and Josh Lagersen — have been rocking around town for ages, but are just now getting around to putting out their self-titled album. And that’s cool by us, because if there’s anything 2011 needs, it’s a friendly reminder that indie rock used to sound more like Slint than The Shins, and more like The Jesus Lizard than Jenny Lewis.
And look, here's a song for you to listen to:
Admit it, that song rules. Go see this band tonight at The 5 Spot. Do it!
