Best January Release Goes to Young Prisms

    • Been looking forward to this entry. My favorite release of 2011 so far.
    • Beachy, surfy, punky, noisy, reverby So-Cal pop music, one of my favorite things in life. Male and female vocals.
    • In case you missed it on my last show (their picture graces the podcast widget), this is a quintet from San Fran. They're on a giant tour of the U.S. right now, and they're shipping off to Europe at the end of February. 
    • They were apparently searched for drugs more than once in Texas this week.
    • This album was reportedly recorded in a dirty apartment above a Chinese restaurant in the Mission District. It's their first full-length record.
    • For my Ohio readers, the Prisms will be at the MOTR pub in Cincinnati tomorrow night. I'm afraid I won't be able to make it. Total bummer.

I played "Breathless" on the show. Here's a live version of another album track, from their split 7" with Small Black on Japan's Big Love label.

Young Prisms - "Eleni" (live version; Small Black/Young Prisms split 7"; 2010)
