Trivia: Did you know the French colors are Blue, White and Red?
Heard of the Kooks? The Wombats? Well there is another band called the Postelles from NYC that is in that same class. Missed these guys the year I went to Bonnaroo and really exited to see them in New Orleans. They have a new single out called "Running Red Lights"!
The single is a preview of what's to come for their forthcoming sophomore album.
Check it out, and catch them on tour with Mayday Parade and The Maine.

White Lines Grey Matter is a semi-new trio (Chris Depoian, Nathanael Raway, and Joey Mayer) from Minneapolis, having formed about four years ago.
Their EP is called Water and Sand, released in March, and you can hear/buy it at Bandcamp.
When asked what they sound like, they described their music as blending "the raw passion of Muse and the Silversun Pickups with the beautifully complex harmonies of Radiohead and Coldplay."
Their next show is at Segue Cafe with Jake Plaunt on Saturday, October 27th. There's also November 16 at the Fine Line Café, but I could not find listing on the venue's website. The date is for a CD release party for Ray Smart. Also on the bill is The Small Cities and Postina.
The legendary jazz saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter has returned to Blue Note Records. The Blue Note release of Without A Net will be Shorter's first album on the iconic label in 43 years! Look for the new album on February 5, 2013.
"Wayne Shorter is one of the greatest musicians and composers of our time," said Don Was, President of Blue Note Records. "… Although welcoming him back to Blue Note Records after 43 years is a romantic notion, Wayne's enduring appeal is rooted in his steadfast refusal to trade in such nostalgia. In fact, it is Mr. Shorter's determination to constantly move forward that makes his new album, Without A Net, such an essential listening experience."
At age 80, I didn't expect to see him on tour… yet, he's listed to play Salle Pleyel in Paris, France on November 3rd, 2012.
