While We Were Sleeping – The Coke Dares

While We Were Sleeping is our new segment where we check out releases that we missed during our lengthy hiatus. Today’s catch up is the “Roburrito’s” EP from The Coke Dares.

Is a concept EP about a Pennsylvania burrito place and it’s fine burritos and burrito accessories what the world needs right now? Turns out, yes. Yes it is. The Coke Dares have long proven that they can make undeniably catchy and impressively short rock songs about such trivial things as carrying big boxes or the need to close a window and this release takes that talent to new heights. Imagine The Who Sell Out but with a single product placement in your ears and frontal lobe, delivered via seven perfect blasts of vocal harmony driven anthems built on all killer no filler riffs. Yes, the world is falling apart, but this EP reminds us that as long as we have rock n’ roll and burritos it ain’t all bad. Get your copy of the EP (spring for the 7″ – worth it for the inside artwork alone) or any of the fine Coke Dares releases here.

Tuesday Tip-Off: William Elliott Whitmore

William Elliott Whitmore is no stranger to Postcard Elba – in fact some of you might remember his advice column he used to have with us called WWWEWD – but just as we’re back so too is Will with a brand new song “My Mind Can Be Cruel To Me.” The track sees Will exploring a more traditional country sound (hello pedal steel) but his world weary singing and plain spoken poetry are still very much front and center. “My Mind Can Be Cruel To Me” is off his upcoming album I’m With You, dropping October 16th on Bloodshot Records. Available for pre-order here.
