Cough Cool hail from Philly, which has been a hotbed for B.O.M.B.S. bands of late. Let’s see, there’s Boy Scout of America, Purling Hiss, Spacin’, Reading Rainbow (I haven’t posted about them, but I reserve the right to) and I’m sure Cheesus could rattle off a lot more. Maybe I should just move there. Maybe I should just get a job. [Pop goes the cap off a Corona].
I’ve been digging Cough Cool for a while now, and lo and behold they’ve posted a new song on soundcloud. Predictably, it’s pretty rad. “One Last Thing” is fuzzy shoegaze pop, which is essentially what Cough Cool is all about. The guitars wash and buzz while the vocals whisper in the background and the tune seems to build on itself for 3 plus minutes without really changing a thing. It’s worth repeat listens. “One Last Thing” is off the forthcoming Rarities: 2009-2012 release on Bathetic Records. If you dig this tune, you should really check out their most recent Lately LP which is streaming on their soundcloud. I’ve been vibing that hard for months now. Peace.
