New from The Blakes: “Basket”

As we’ve mentioned before, The Blakes hail from Seattle and have this cool amped up retro-punk vibe going on, recommended for fans of groups like the Redwalls, or perhaps the Strokes. This catchy new song is one of six from the live iTunes EP that was recorded when the band was in San Francisco recently. It’s got a bright surf vibe with a driving beat, and laments that fact that she left him in a basket and that it’s not so hard to do. So maybe they are also an exceptionally tiny & portable band.

  • I met the Blakes when we played a show together in Port Townsend, WA with our former band. I thought they were assholes … but then I later found out they were flipping attitude because of reasons that I might not disclose in a public forum … haha

"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..."

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.
