This Minute Is A Good Minute


Noisy Seattle indie rockers Welcome, who fairly recently signed to FatCat Records, will be releasing their debut album Sirs in the U.S. and Canada on March 5th. We talked about these guys once before, but here's another new track from the album to hold you over until March. Recommended for fans of Deerhoof and the like.

[MP3]: Welcome :: This Minute (Recommended)
This song isn't as immediately grabbing as the fantastic "All Set" that we posted before, but it's definitely another super solid track from an album that seems to be piecing together extremely well so far. They move through roughly a minute of pretty minimal instrumentation before showing their true colors, and turning on the distortion letting the guitars run wild. After cutting off the distortion, the song makes its way back into the original melody before slowly burning out.

We posted this song before and I think it's still my favorite. This song is just awesome.

[MP3]: Welcome :: All Set (Highly Recommmmmended!)

Welcome on MySpace

Unrelated, but, did anyone else catch that "Dick-in-a-Box" digital short on SNL this past Saturday? It was the funniest thing I've seen on that show in quite a while. I've been looking all over for a clip of it, but to no avail. Anyone know where I could find one? UPDATE! An awesome commentor found us a link! Watch the video here.
