New Noise :: Due East + Magnetic Flowers

Two of my favorite local bands have been hard at work in the studio this year and recently posted some of the fruits of their labors. Due East played an amazing show here in town last week with Cory Branan, and then I followed them up to Raleigh to see them open for Cory and American Aquarium. I might post a review of that show later once the pictures get back, but in the meantime, I'll just say that it was well worth the drive. The only disappointment was that I kept forgetting to get a copy of Due East's album from the guys. Luckily for me (and you, gentle reader), they've posted some tracks on their myspace page. Here's a favorite of mine. It perfectly captures the heartbroken smiles Due East tries to invoke with their music. And the line 'Sometimes one and one make none' is a way more astute mathematics-meets-monogamy observation than Ryan Adams' new satellite radio hit 'It Takes Two.' Make sure to check out the other tracks on their MySpace page, and swing by New Brookland Tavern on July 15th to see the guys play and maybe pick up a copy of the new CD.

The hits keep on coming with Magnetic Flowers and their upcoming album Presents, Pasts, and Futures that you can grab at their CD-release show at The Whig on August 17th. This is a terrific track that showcases some of the great dual (and triple) vocals that these guys can do. And the explosive end to the song is just too much fun. Again, head to their myspace for more goodness.
