Summer Listening II: Glen Echo – 1945 E.P. // Andrew Dunham – GoldBrick

Well, it’s been a good week for Kenyon music!  We’ve seen releases from Tristan Neviska, We Just Spoke, and now from two more power duos: Glen Echo (Alex Martin ’13 & Bennett Davidson ’12) and Andrew Dunham (Andrew Firestone ’14 & Win Dunham ’14).  The former just played a glorious CD release party in Tafts with Poor Remy, and the latter have been staying up late into the night with copious stockpiles of munchies polishing their collab – Firestone admits to not having gone to bed later than 6am once during finalas week.

You can read about, listen to, and freely download both releases after the jump.  Seriously, do it.  I can’t remember the last time so much badass student music surfaced all at once, so be sure to jump on this.

Do it tonight: Cloud Nothings @ The Horn (w/ Glen Echo)

Cloud Nothings - Attack On Memory (cover art)A mere four days after their spectacular Black, White, & Red All Over formal, the Horn Gallery is ready to throw down again, this time with the assistance of up-and-coming indie punk outfit Cloud Nothings.

Dylan Baldi started out recording songs on his laptop to kill time at college, then decided to pursue music full-time after a successful NYC gig in 2009.  Since then, his raw, euphoric brand of lo-fi punk has garnered a lot of blogosphere love, and his latest album, Attack On Memory (Carpark Records), was the first record of 2012 to receive a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork.

If the words “loud,” “energetic” and “dancing your ass off” don’t tantalize and delight your fancy, you might want to steer clear of the Horn tonight.  Doors at 9, Kenyon’s own Glen Echo opens the show at 9:30 and Cloud Nothings goes on at 10.  Tunes after the jump.
