Like many, my love of music started with my parents' collection and the first time I heard my mother's copy of The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour. This week's Five and Alive attempts to see if our parents feel any love for our iPod mixes. La Dispute's Adam Vass sat down with his mom to attempt to close the generational gap. See his results in the replies and discuss what albums/songs are "okay" to put on in the car or at the house for the 'rents.
In our interview last night, La Dispute confirmed they are indeed working on a new album and two split 7" records. One split is going to be with Touche Amore, but they couldn't reveal the second at the time of interview. A review of the tour can be seen here.
La Dispute's album Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair is now available on iTunes. Maybe you should give it a whirl; Blake did say it "fused diversity and meaningfulness into an album that surges forward without ever looking back."
We've posted "New Storms for Older Lovers" from La Dispute's forthcoming full-length Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair. Definitely recommended if you like mewithoutYou, Sinaloa, melodic hardcore, loose concept albums, or diversity. Highly touted by staff members Blake Solomon and Travis Parno.
La Dispute has posted a new song called "Said the King to the River" here. The track is taken from their new album Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair, which will be released November 11 through No Sleep Records. Pre-order deals can be found here.
