Ski Lodge chillin' at Sound Bites Series 2012 (more by Jessica Amaya)
Ski Lodge

While Ski Lodge are still putting final touches on their debut album, the Brooklyn band will release a new single, "Just to Be Like You," via Dovecote on April 16. Much like the band's 2011 EP, the new single owes more than a little to early-'80s janglers Orange Juice and The Smiths. It's pretty darn catchy and you can stream it below.

Meanwhile, Ski Lodge will play NYC on Friday (3/8) at Muchmore's with Literature, The Hairs, and The Teen Age. That's a pretty good show, especially if your tastes lean towards indiepop. Immediately after, Ski Lodge hit the road heading for Austin and those four letters that I'm really tired of typing. After that fest, the band will join up with Chad Valley for some dates on the West Coast and Southwest. But Ski Lodge will be back in time for NYC Popfest at the end of May. All tour dates are listed below.

Have you ever noticed that virtually every non hip-hop music review on Pitchfork/BV/Stereogum contains a line that more or less says "this band basically rips off so and so", and we're supposed to be like "oh great, I love so and so". This is why indie rock is dead.

Wow how brave you are when you post anonymous comments? Great job angry 20 somethings really the future is looking bright with you leading in your incredibly entitled way! The truth is you are jealous and that is why you spout off like this. Only someone with a very large lack of self confidence needs to go on the internet and talk shit about someone they don't know and some song they barely listened to. So here the other side of that. Do you have any idea how difficult/impossible it is to make it in the music business these days? I doubt any of you cowards would have half the balls that she does to put herself and the music she makes out there, and actually have it paid attention to! As for advertising, guess what? That's the only way bands can make any money these days thanks to entitled little turds like you that say "records should be free". Guess what? Recording, Mixing, Mastering, printing and distribution are not free at all! But still the $10 which is less than an appetizer is just out of your entitled little price range isn't it?. This is good music by the way, it might confuse you to hear an actually song rather than just a bunch of video game noises to a drum machine but I suggest you give it another listen.

Very rated post. I learn one thing fully new on your distinctive blog page daily. It's stimulating to find out the issue in subject material from other writers and master a little from their internet site. I'd like to apply specific aspects of this content material on my blog. Natually I'll give a backlink. Thanks for your sharing.
