The Y Axes made my night.
Now here's a young band, with a fresh pop sound, that's making it in the post-record label era. Let's celebrate young, fresh bands! I swear, if I could have hastened the death of the record label sooner I would have.
They have a CD release party at Bottom of the Hill this Wednesday, March 20th, for their EP Moon Rock.
I follow up their visit with some live tracks I've yet to share with you.
