Pittsburgh power-pop kings on the rise 1,2,3 need your help. The dudes recently put together a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to get a new touring van: theirs has been breaking down enough to cause them to miss shows on the regular. It’s a good cause – not only is touring the best way for most artists to make a living these days, you definitely want to check out 1,2,3’s live show whenever you can – with cool rewards for donating, but if you’re short on cash you can just check out the new track they’ve just dropped. “Lonesome Boring Summer” sounds like its title – woozy, hazy, nostalgic – and also like the kind of driving, sunny pop songs you’ve come to love this band for. Check it out.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
