Brothers Ryan, Zac, and Alex Levine at the genesis of their band, The So So Glos.
Gang choruses and power chords dominate "Son of an American," the first track Brooklyn indie stalwarts The So So Glos share from their upcoming 2012 album Blowout. This will be the first record released on Shea Stadium Recordings.
If you're not familiar with Shea Stadium's exhaustive recording practices, familiarizing yourself before their studio sounds proper debut might be worthwhile. "Son of an American," for what it's worth, has a big, well-rounded sound. It's an inverse patriotic romp, where the protagonist roots for the losing team, drinks malt liquor and eats malt ice cream. Dig.
Listen to it here.
The So So Glos and Shea Stadium are both apropos for us to mention once again the banging Occupy Wall Street/National Lawyer's Guild benefit happening Monday night.
