Track of the Week: Stagecoach – 56K Dial-Up
Released: 21st April
Get It: Cassette Single / Digital Download
It's been nearly a year since we last heard from slacker-pop heroes Stagecoach when they released the terrific double A side 'Jonah Lomu' / 'Tony Hawk' and the waiting has been starting to get to us. Fantastic news then that they've returned with a cracking new track as a taster for the eventual forthcoming debut album.
Released on a limited edition green cassette for Record Store Day '56KDial-UP' is another impressive weapon in their arsenal. A combination of their ear for a tune with an inventive structure that refuses to sit still, it will keep fans of their EPs feeling at home, with the fuzzy guitars taking the lead and some additional keyboards putting a little sci-fi kick into the background. Carrying the torch from Supergrass, this is a summer smash!
Backed with a nice pop-tastic remix of 'Hang That Head', this cassette is certainly worth the massive queue at Crash Records on Saturday morning. But for those of you that weren't there it's available NOW from the Alcopop! shop, but you'll have to hurry.
