Every so often, it’s time for a random music column. Here goes:
New Haven rockers Beijing sent Alternative Control their EP to review — see, Twitter is good for something after all. It’s Not So Simple was recorded this summer, only months after the band formed. To be honest, I’m hooked. “Glitch” and “Hands in Front” gave me serious nostalgia for the days when I laid on the floor for hours listening to the Foo Fighters and Weezer. In fact, the moving vocals paired with “My Name is Jonas” guitar tone makes me want to crack open a beer and dance around my bedroom right now…
Okay, I’m back.
