Boston indie-rock band The Color And Sound recently signed to Black Numbers; a 2013 EP was re-issued as an introduction to new fans, but the real excitement for the pop-friendly, boppy act begins right now (right now!!) with the September 16 release of a new EP called Peace of Mind (pre-order here). In the replies, we're premiering a lyric video for the first tune to be released from that EP, titled "Cigarettes," in the form of a lyric video that looks like a karaoke machine. Here's the thing; well, here's two things: 1. How have I never seen a lyric video done like this before?? and 2. It's damn, damn good and catchy as all hell. Check it out, or else why did you bother meandering to...

Light Years is stuck in a hype-y pop-punk genre that, to be perfectly honest, it doesn't quite fit in. Its members are older than most of their peers, and they don't play the type of Tumblr-friendly songs that lead bands to high Billboard chart positions. That's okay though -- because what Light Years does best is deliver honest, straightforward punk rock tracks presented with excellent guitar work, catchy melodies and thoughtful craftsmanship. You can stream the title track from their forthcoming Animal Style Records EP, Temporary, in the replies -- and when you're done enjoying it, you can preorder the 12" here.
