Ra Ra Riot: “Too Too Fast” (new song)

I can’t get this new Ra Ra Riot song out of my head, from last Friday at the Larimer Lounge. Look how much fun they are having — it’s infectious:

If you want to hear the full song (my camera battery died), go check out the mp3 from their woxy.com set. They were extremely impressive – sort of a chamber pop meets indie rock meets synthesizer danceability. They are coming back through Colorado two more times in the coming months which means they are probably heading where you live too (well, maybe if you don’t live in, say Iceland — and I know you’re out there). Absolutely go see these guys live.

Also! The lead singer Wes? Yeah, he’s got real good taste in music websites, sporting a shirt from the stint they did with our friends over at Daytrotter. Go Wes!

  • Thanks for the video. I saw them for the first time at SXSW and honestly, I wasn’t impressed (or perhaps my expectations were too high). But seeing this makes me reconsider. They’re opening up for the Cribs on Friday, so I’ll make sure to be early.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
