Hot Lava - Lavalogy
I saw this band open for Monotonix back in October, and I wasn't necessarily impressed with their live set. Then again, they were standing between me and a Monotonix set, so It was hard to like anything at that point, and I just wanted them off the stage as soon as possible. Well now I feel like an asshole because this is actually really good stuff. Catchy, lo-fi-ish pop with surprisingly memorable lyrics. Frontwoman Allison Apperson's tech savvy and ridiculously catchy lyrics won't be leaving your mind anytime soon (I've been singing "apple, option, apple, option, option, fire, fire" all day). This one was released back in October via Bar/None and it's a fun and catchy little record from one of the best bands from Richmond, VA I've come across so far.
