Quarterbacks

New Paltz trio Quarterbacks will release their new full length, Quarterboy, on cassette on May 6 via Double Double Whammy (the same label that put out the excellent new Frankie Cosmos album). The new album is somewhere between The Microphones' early lo-fi material and Dbl Dbl Whammy associate Radiator Hospital's confessional bedroom recordings. You can get a taste from three of its tracks, including the brand new single "Rain Delay" which premieres in this post. Stream that, along with "Center" and Pool," below. The album can be pre-ordered here.

Quarterbacks also have also have multiple NY shows coming up, including three in Brooklyn. The first is the Death by Audio (4/17) stop of the Donovan Wolfington / Dowsing tour, which also includes Crying. Then, they play Baby's All Right on 4/27 with Bluffing, Turbosleaze, Haunted America and Psychic Book Club, and Silent Barn on 5/23 with other bands TBA.

All dates are listed, with the song streams, below...

Legit update from theit Tumblr:

"I have been very sick and also very glum this week (anniversaries of sad things, birthdays of people who no longer have ages, opportunities falling through, having to study for midterms, unnecessarily cold weather, living on top of a mountain, getting cabin fever, missin Clare a lot), but now I feel better after learning how to play this song."

Gotta hate those midterms.

Where's Mr. Stop Making Fun of Andrew? Is it only when I post? OK - I won't make fun of this fucking clown and his purposely-shitty sounding recordings.

I also won't make fun of "Quarterbacks also have also have multiple NY shows coming up, including thre in Brooklyn" because it's difficult to spell-check "three".

Is he supposed to be the "Quarterboy"? I don't know the whole mythology behind this clearly important band.
