The Postelles at SubT tomorrow night (11/5)

New York group, The Postelles have been a buzz band since the release of their debut EP in 2008, produced by Strokes guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr. They finally released their self-titled debut album earlier this year. For me, they’ve always sort of sounded like the wimpy 50s sock hop/doo wop loving brother of the Strokes, which is definitely not a bad thing. There’s even some of that Julian Casablancas circular wordplay on today’s featured video, “Fell Asleep on the Dancefloor” as Daniel Balk sings,  “I’ll do anything that I’m told to, except anything that I won’t do. And that makes everything you’ve ever done before.”

You can catch The Postelles tomorrow night at SubT with the Wombats. Doors are at 8:30 and tickets cost $15. The show is 17+.

Gold Motel: “Leave You In Love”

Last month, Gold Motel released their latest single, “Leave You In Love.”  The song, true to the Gold Motel mold, is a burst of fun, sunny California pop. As Greta Morgan laments over lost love, the band behind her are busy intricately crafting a Strokesy hook-filled tune circa 2004’s Room on Fire. You can download “Leave You In Love” for $1 at the band’s Bandcamp page.
