Tomorrow's Tulips

Hazy, shady, VU-influenced pop damned near engineered for late summer heatwaves and beachside romances, that's what you get from Eternally Teenaged, the debut full-length from Southern California lo-fi duo, Tomorrow's Tulips. Tomorrow's Tulips is Alex Knost, who has that echoey, hollow-voiced, almost goth delivery that will remind you of Royal Baths. His girlfriend, Christina Keyes, plays drums and sings sometimes. I like one of her tracks the best, and not just it shares a name with one of my favorite Thermals songs. It's called "Shades of Grey," but the one they're giving away is the title track. Enjoy.

"Eternally Teenaged"

Eternally Teenaged comes out next week on Galaxia Records, also responsible for that excellent Tommy Guerrero album, Lifeboats and Follies, which I might have to write about later on this week...
