The Coasts : An Exclusive Look

15 Jul

For all of you who have been breathlessly waiting to see if I was going to stick to my “Blog at least once a week” resolution, you can let out a big sigh of relief.

[Insert big sigh here]

Now that that’s out of the way (and I’ve totally gained your trust by keeping my promise for one week running), let’s get down to business.

Remember when I mentioned Ike was recording an album? (See this awesome post for the behind the scenes account.) Well, even if you don’t, the good news is he is just about finished. And I think, in an unabashedly biased fashion, that his stuff is not only worth checking out, but also REALLY GOOD.  Well, if you can hear and you like good music that is.

Let me break this down for you. I’m trying to give you the gift of the cutting edge here, people. Share the goods on a cool new band before it is sold out and overplayed. I’m giving you the golden opportunity to be able to say, “Yeah, I was totally The Coasts’ first fan, you know, before they started selling out arenas etc.” That is a precious gift, my friends. You don’t have to thank me.

[Insert gratuitous, but sill appreciated ‘Thanks!’]

Here’s how you can keep up with his band, The Coasts, as they countdown to their first album release on August 1stish. I’ll keep you updated on all the developments because again, I’m totally and completely biased and I don’t care who knows it.

Avenue#1: Like them on FB.

http://www.facebook.com/TheCoasts

Why? It’s not hard AND everyone will think you are cool when they see ‘The Coasts’ on your feed. Believe me.

Avenue #2: Follow them on the Twitter

www.twitter.com/thecoasts

Again, this takes just one click of a button, if you lack the finger strength I can teach you some great finger strengthening techniques.*Plus, when you follow The Coasts, you will never fail to have a smile on your face when you see their understatedly clever Tweets.

*that is a lie

And I saved the best for last….

Avenue #3:  Check out their first two songs for free on their band camp site

If you aren’t addicted to their melodious grooves 5 seconds in, you might not have ears.

Bonus points for sharing your fave! Just let me know, and your points will arrive in 6-8 business days.*

*this is a lie

Well, folks, I think I’ve spread enough happy news today, but I’ve got one more announcement.

[Insert drumroll here]

It’s FRIDAY!

Have a wonderful weekend. I’ll see ya next week!
