Laughing – “Bruised”

I have to admit, even I’m not immune to ‘90s nostalgia, but where the rest of the world seems to be searching through radio singles from the summer of ’94, I’ve been tearing through power pop gems, just waiting for the weather to break. Seems like I’m not alone in that respect. Montreal’s Laughing launch into a classic strum, picking apart memories of Matthew Sweet, Lemonheads, Choo Choo Train, and Permanent Green Light. The jangle of mandolin gives the song a bit of an Athens ‘80s wash as well. With past and current members of Nap Eyes, Monomyth, Human Music, and Fountain, the band’s already got a pop pedigree in place and they translate it easily to a cut that feels like it’s already spent quite a bit of time on the ‘90s CMJ charts. It’s a loving homage that sticks around the head for days. The band’s new album, Because It’s True, lands on Meritorio Records and Celluloid Lunch June 28th.
