New Stuff from Old Friends: Yawn Mower and The RockNRoll Hi-Fives

Positive Vibes

There's lots I should be doing today. I have some things to edit, some writing of my own to do, and some dad duties. First, though, I wanted to make sure you were aware of a few things from a couple of members of our extended CoolDad Music Family.

Yawn Mower, "Kickstand"

Back in March, we premiered "Kickstand" from Yawn Mower's Could Eat, Would Sleep. The song carries with it the simple message of relying on friends to make through some tough or wild times. Last week, the duo released a video for the track.

The Michael Burke-directed clip with visuals by Jupiter goes from stark to psychedelic and features some interpretive dance from drummer Biff Swenson.

Could Eat, Would Sleep is out now on Mint 400 Records. Yawn Mower play this Saturday, 6/23, at Asbury Park Yacht Club with Black Flamingos.

The RockNRoll Hi-Fives, "C'est La Vie"

We're getting closer and closer to the release of The RockNRoll Hi-Fives' Re-Introducing The RockNRoll Hi-Fives. A few days ago, the band gave us the second single from that record in the form of "C'est La Vie."

"C'est La Vie" deals with moving on following the fraying of a once-close bond with someone. There really isn't much in the way of sadness or regret to the song, though. Instead, singer Eilee Centeno has clearly made peace with the situation, singing, "C'est La Vie! Hasta la vista, bay-bee!" as the rest of the band blazes behind her.

The RockNRoll Hi-Fives worked with Mike Moebius at Moonlight Mile Recording on Re-Introducing The RockNRoll Hi-Fives, and the collaboration really captures the positive energy of the band.

Re-Introducing The RockNRoll Hi-Fives is due from Little Dickman Records on 6/29. The band sandwich that release between two big celebrations. The first is this Sunday, 6/24, at NYC's Mercury Lounge with Lost Boy ?. That's followed by a party on the beach at The Anchor's Bend in Asbury Park on 7/2 with Wetbrain which serves as the kick-off to the band's summer tour.
