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.
