Wonderful has released their new record, and it’s incredible. Now, there’s no shortage of love between our two bands. We’ve toured with their side-project, United State of Electronica. We’ve shared a practice space with them. 2 of them played on our record Urgency. One of us played poker against one of them a few weeks ago… So that adds up to “We’ll most likely check out their record.” But it occurred to me that there’s something none of that can buy… No amount of friendship or love can get their songs stuck in my head, and oh my word, 2 of the songs on this record will not leave. It’s just really, really good.
Almost every year I pick out a “record of the summer.” Last year’s was Best Coast. This summer it’s Wonderful.
