  Chin Up Chin Up - new LP

Chin Up Chin Up - This Harness Can't Ride Anything

Suicide Squeezers Chin Up Chin Up have their next full-length LP primed and ready to go, and it's really something.

i can only imagine being in a band whose bio is mentioned more often than their work, and so i'd like not to recall the very sad story everyone already knows [if you actually don't, get up to speed here]. my real concentration is the growth in their melodic pop sound, and the further reaching of their true potential. it's extremely catchy and sonorously emotional (nope, no, not emo). unfortunately, you have to wait until it drops on October 10th, and salivate all the while - once you hear these tracks, of course.

::::my pleasure:
Chin Up Chin Up - This Harness Can't Ride Anything

- - - this track is highly, highly recommended; vocals are at their best, and the music grabs you instantly.
Chin Up Chin Up - Water Planes In Snow
- - - music as catchy as that of label mates Minus The Bear, but with the rock versatility that semi-prog can sometimes lack. vocals are also more loose, more repetitive, a little darker. like the quiet moments in Broken Social Scene. (sort of.)

bonus mp3: Chin Up Chin Up - I Need A Friend With A Boat

-here's the full tracklist:
This Harness Can't Ride Anything
Water Planes In Snow
We've Got To Keep Running
