  • The Coasts recently released a new single.

Little Rock- and Lebanon, Ohio-based rock band The Coasts (perhaps you caught them at this year's Times Musicians Showcase) have a new song and accompanying video out this week.

"No One's Listening" was recorded up in New York at a place called Wreckroom, which is actor Adrian Grenier's home studio/label/hangout space thingy.

This summer, The Coasts won Wreckroom's Battle of the Bands, which meant they got to go up there and record a song and shoot a video.

Grenier wrote that "The Coasts conjure notes of Fleet Foxes, Dr. Dog, and Weezer to bridge a gap between aged Americana and emerging folk. These guys are winners — they not only won our Battle of the Bands, but they won us over with a killer tune. I hope they come back for more."

Noice! You can watch the video after the jump.

The Coasts are sort of like that one long-distance couple you knew right after college who somehow made it work despite the miles separating them.

Just as you're tsk-tsking, like, "Man, they'll never be able to keep this up," they're all, "Hey, in two weeks we're leaving on a super awesome trip where we're gonna backpack all over Vietnam and Cambodia for six months and further solidify our odds-defying commitment to one another" and then you're like, "Dang, they're really in this for the long haul."

Only instead of a trip to Southeast Asia, they're releasing a new five-song EP called "Santa Fe" in December. Here's the cover art, by notable Little Rock artist Matt Owen, he of the widely praised minimalist movie posters.

Some of them are real jammers and some are more low key, so just sit back and let the vibes do their thing. And don't think about the fact that we just said "vibes." /more/

    July 16, 2014
    Reggie Gold is another member of the local Young Gods of America collective worth paying attention to — this song appeared two days ago and has a weird, eerie Danny Elfman energy. He's also really great at Twitter, where he says things like, "i have flashbacks of ancient memories all through out the day..they be of the most vivid dreams." /more/
