Total Babes released ‘Heydays’ and share video for title track (steams), add Rough Trade show after European tour

by Bill Pearis


Cleveland quartet Total Babes released their new album, Heydays, today (5/19) via Wichita. If you like classic-style ’90s indie rock (think Sebadoh or Wedding Present), Total Babes do it very well, with lots of punky energy and sneery attitude. As you may know, the band includes Jayson Gerycz of Cloud Nothings and that band’s frontman, Dylan Baldi, contributes sax to “Circling.” You can stream the whole album via Rdio and a few songs via Soundcloud below. Also below, the funny video for Heydays title track (featuring a cameo from Colleen Green).

As mentioned, Total Babes are, in fact, playing shows with Sebadoh. None in NYC, but they’ve just added a headlining show happening here at Rough Trade on June 19 which comes right after a European tour. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (5/20) at noon.
