All 3 of the bands featured this week in New Music Tuesday are on my 2015 Coachella Perfect Poster Wish List; 2:54, Parkay Quarts, and Tears For Fears. There’s another release this week from some band called Pink Floyd, if they happen to end up on line 1 at the 2015 Coachella Festival that not only would be cool but also hilarious. I would expect a track by track review of the new Pink Floyd album from contributing writer Present-Tense any minute now.
2:54 “The Other I”
2:54 is a London based indie rock band comprised of the Thurlow sisters, Colette and Hannah. If you don’t know who they are, shame on you ! This is the shoegazers sophomore release, and is the follow-up to the 2012 self-titled debut. We showed you the track “Orion” a few months back, and below is the latest single “Blindfold.”

Parkay Quarts “Content Nausea”
Over the last 2 years, this is one of my fave indie bands. This is the Brooklyn band’s second release in 2014. The other one, Sunbathing Animal, was released under the moniker Parquet Courts. One of the things I like about these dudes is they don’t give a shit, they just make good music. Presently, the band goes by Parkay Quarts, Parquet Courts, and PCPC. How fun!

Tears For Fears
“Songs From The Big Chair” (Re-Issue)
Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, a.k.a. Tears For Fears, are reissuing their 1985 classic album Songs From The Big Chair in a 6-disc box set. I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing TFF and I’m hoping for a Midnight set on the Mojave stage at next April’s Coachella Festival.
Shout, Shout, Let It All Out!
