This Weeks Short Bursts:
Admiral Radley, Film School, & No Age
The pairing of two California pop darlings, Earlimart and Grandaddy have spawned Admiral Radley and the results are somewhat, what you might expect. That is if you expected a batch of melancholy pop songs that seem to bounce around your head for days on end. The band consists of Jason Lytle and Aaron Burch from Grandaddy as well as Aaron Espinoza and Arianna Murray from Earlimart with help from ex- Grandaddy guitarist Jim Fairchild.

Ad Rad's debut, I Heart California was released earlier this month by The Ship and the band have just announced a lengthy tour that will bring them to T.T. The Bears on August 17th with Cambridge, by way of New York's Hooray For Earth.

Order the album via the Admiral Radley Store

San Franciso's shoegaze stalwarts Film School are getting ready to drop Fission, their fourth full length, albeit a little bit later than initially reported. It had been reported back in May that the album would be released on July 20th. However according to the bands new label, Hi Speed Soul, Fission will be released on August 31st. I can only assume the reason for the rescheduling of the release date is that the band initially had planned to self release Fission prior to signing with San Diego's Hi Speed Soul. Go ahead and dull your impatience with the terrific new single below.

No Age are poised to return with the follow up to their smashing 2008 debut long player, Nouns, with Everything In Between on September 28th via Sub-Pop. Recorded in their hometown between 2009-2010, the album consists of 13 songs of the bands signature noise pop, with the added element of sampling/sound collages that the band featured on last years Losing Feeling EP. On September 28th the duo of Randy Randall and Dean Spunt will issue the albums first song Glitter, via 7"+12" single. The 7" will consist of the Glitter b/w Inflorescence and the 12" will pair the A side with In Rebound and Vision II. Both versions can be pre-ordered through the band label as well as Amazon.

The bands been playing new material at recent shows. Excuse the camera angle (shot from behind Dean Spunt's drum kit) on this video, but the sound is decent and it features the track Depletion from the forthcoming Everything in Between, so we hope you dig it as much as we do.
