Living Room at Saint Vitus in 2013 (more by Vladislav Grach)
If you go to punk/emo shows in Brooklyn, there's a good chance you've caught Living Room at least once. They're basically the resident band at Suburbia and have opened tons of notable bills elsewhere in the area for Hop Along/Sidekicks, You Blew It!, Slingshot Dakota and others. Their new album, Moonchaser, comes out August 19 via Jetsam-Flotsam (pre-order digital or physical), and we've got the premiere of its title track in this post. The song sounds like a long lost b-side off Braid's Frame & Canvas, employing that band's anthemic yet ever so slightly off-key vocals and almost-math rock subtleties. Listen below.
The band are heading out on a tour in August, which includes multiple shows with Vetter Kids in the Southern US, and it kicks off with a hometown show at Suburbia on Saturday (8/2) with Del Paxton, What Moon Things and Bethlehem Steel. $5 at the door gets you in, and Living Room will have limited test presses of their new album available.
