Lost Boy ? - “Graves”

DDW is always involved in some cool shit.

ohnoimlateforschool:

Band: Liam Betson

Band location: New Jersey, USA?

Why we like it: Liam Betson was formerly in Titus Andronicus and previously recorded under the moniker Liam The Younger. “The Cover Of Hunter” is his first release under his own name and his first with up and coming label Double Double Whammy (LVL UP, Frankie Cosmos, Crying). It features appearances from members of Big Troubles, Titus Andronicus and Julian Lynch.

From start to finish, this is a great record. The Cover of Hunter starts off with the eight minute “I Can’t Tell If You’re Looking At Me”. Betson’s imagery and delivery as well as Lynch’s clarinet shine in this song. At times it sounds like Bright Eyes and at times it sounds like LVL UP. For his first studio recorded album, Betson and company did a fantastic job. There isn’t one skippable song on here.

Speaking of LVL UP, they’re going on tour with Liam Betson this summer.

LVL UP - Topsider

Your headlights are beating down on my back and I’m alone now.
And while stagnant I remain you’ll keep in motion;
I hate this more than anything.
My anxiety has yet to cease, but I’ll hold out.
Yet all that’s been on my mind is curling into you in the summertime.
