stream Telethon’s “Ur Schedule” (and watch the funny, Gmail-inspired video)

Milwaukee power popsters Telethon are following last year’s The Grand Spontanean with the Modern Abrasive EP this Friday (11/9) via their own Halloween Records (pre-order). They’ve already shared the title track and “Palo Santo,” and we’re now premiering a third single, “Ur Schedule,” along with its (pretty funny) lyric video. The video is of a computer screen, and it features someone sending an email to where they type out the lyrics as they’re sung — a few fixed typos included. As for the song, it’s a nice dose of punky, jangly power pop that sounds like it could’ve been a minor hit in 1996. It’s the first time they ever recorded a song with jangle pop’s instrument of choice — a 12-string — and vocalist/guitarist Kevin Tully said, “We really just wanted to write a Matthew Sweet or REM song. How’d we do?” Check it out below.

Telethon have one upcoming show at the moment: the Chicago stop of their pals/collaborators Antarctigo Vespucci’s tour (aka Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock) tour this Thursday (11/8).
