Friday Jukebox/Canadian Content
Canadian shoegazers extraordinaire, Mystery Machine hung up their flangers back in 1999, but they’re back with a new album and touring again.

(a band I haven’t seen yet despite being good friends with them) open. I hope to see you there. Here’s their pseudo-hit, Brand New Song*:

*Years ago, I picked up a 7″ at one of their shows. Brand New Song was the B Side with Heart of Glass on Side A. I thought, ‘Cool, they cover Heart of Glass, that’ll be interesting.’
Nope. They didn’t cover it. Side A of their 7″ was Blondie.
