Baltimore’s Roomrunner is one of the loudest bands I’ve seen in the past year, and also one of the best – live and on the two EPs they’ve released since 2011, the four-piece channel a super-tight, super-heavy grunge-revivalist drive better than most other bands hearkening to a ’90s Seattle vibe. “Weird” is the first single from Roomrunner’s upcoming debut LP Ideal Cities (hands down one of my most anticipated records of 2013), and it’s got everything you need to know about the band – bratty vocals layer over massive, distorted instrumentals locked into a serious groove. I’m not embarrassed to say I’ve had this on repeat since it was released and I’m already planning how many times I can see this band at SXSW without looking like a crazy person. Check it out – the record’s out May 14.
