New Video :: Centro-matic

In 2001 we were on a pretty rabid Promise Ring/Vermont bender when we were given our proper introduction to Denton, TX's Centro-matic through = Opportunity, the split EP they released with Davey von Bohlen's Vermont. It took just one listen to the tracks contributed by Centro-matic before we were completely hooked on the superb songwriting of fronter Will Johnson. 10 years have passed and as far as we can tell Johnson keeps on getting better and better, weather releasing music with Centro-matic, South San Gabriel, or as a solo artist Johnson seems incapable of writing a bad song. Centro-matic have always seemed to be priority #1 with Johnson and the band have just announced the release of a new album, Canidate Waltz, to be released in April. We know very little about the new album other than this new video that band posted to their site on New Years Day. Only in My Double Mind is decidedly more pop than we've heard from the band before, but it's also immediate, accessible, and pretty damn close to perfect.
