The Friday Ketchup

You look at the clock and it reads 3:00 AM. A crumpled-up candy wrapper sits to the side of your textbook. I don’t remember anything of the last ten pages I’ve read, you think to yourself. Maybe it would be better for you to go to sleep at this point. Surely a few hours of rest would do you better than to keep studying. I’ll just close my eyes for a minute, you say, then I’ll be able to finish this up. You look back at the clock. 9:30 AM. You’re late for the test. You rush to put on your clothes and run out the door. A few minutes later you arrive at the classroom, out of breath and sweaty. The professor hands you the test along with a stern look of disapproval. You take a seat and turn to the first page of the exam. You can’t believe it. This isn’t what you’ve been studying for at all. Your head starts swimming and you begin to feel nauseous. The prompt sits on the page mocking you. It’s the Friday Ketchup.

On Friday, the Kenyon band SPORTS released their new album, All of Something. Various blogs and websites, including NPR Music, featured singles from the album in the lead-up to its release. The band also received a shoutout from Rolling Stone‘s website, which wrote:

Sports are a great band with an un-Googleable name. Don’t hold it against them: Their excellent new album, All of Something, is full of sharp, sweet songwriting that will make you want to listen to it again as soon as it’s over.

SPORTS’s Busy Summer

The band SPORTS had quite an exciting summer. Consisting of Carmen Perry ’15, Benji Dossetter ’15, James Karlin ’15, Catherine Dwyer ’14, and Jack Washburn ’16, SPORTS plays infectious high-energy power pop reminiscent of bands like Swearin’, Aye Nako, and Hop Along. Earlier this year the band recorded their second album, All of Something, with Kyle Gilbride (of the aforementioned Swearin’) in Philadelphia. Since then, three singles off the album have been released, and the songs have been featured on BBC Radio 1, Vice’s Noisey blog, Stereogum, and NPR’s All Songs Considered, among others.

All of Something is being released by Father/Daughter Records on October 30th (you can preorder the record digitally and on vinyl here). In the meantime, you can listen to the rest of the band’s music on their Bandcamp page. With most of its members graduated and scattered around the country, it’s unclear what the future holds for SPORTS, but hopefully this new record is not the last we hear of this exciting Kenyon band.
