You Blew It! // UK & EU dates with Real Friends & Modern Baseball

You Blew It! // Keep Doing What You're Doing

Orlando, Florida quintet You Blew It! are set to release their sophomore LP Keep Doing What You're Doing with us on January 14, 2014. The follow-up to 2012's critically acclaimed Grow Up, Dude was produced by Evan Weiss of Into It. Over It. and engineered by Matt Jordan (Stay Ahead of the WeatherCut Teeth) at Atlas Studios in Chicago.

image

I remember repeatedly asking Evan, Matt and the band for updates throughout the recording process and got nothing in response nearly every time save for the same video clip of AXL Rose repeatedly asking of his backing band, "Gimme some reggae!" — which I took as an omen for the entire album.

Fortunately, Keep Doing What You're Doing sees You Blew It! instead dialing back on their more raw influences to create complex song structures, intricate guitar lines and cleaner vocals with a healthy dose of fuzz riding over it all. The ten tracks on the album call to mind The Get Up KidsAmerican Football and Death Cab for Cutie but maintain the integrity of the sound that the band has built their name on. Pre-orders are now up for the album with several package deal options available.

Yesterday, Pitchfork said of the band,

noticeably cleaner and more purposeful ... the grown-up sonics only make the underlying, pound-the-dashboard, yell-to-yourself sentiments all the more loud and clear.

Stereogum also weighed in on the new song:

Big feelings, big sound.

You can listen to the band's new song, "Award of the Year Award" directly below:

You Blew It!'s "The Past In Present" on vinyl

This is the record that got us to pay attention to You Blew It!. Not because it's a great record (it's not). The Past In Present is riddled with imperfections and quirkiness throughout. There are truly great moments on this album, while others stumble and fall just short — the markings of a band that knew what they wanted to do, but wasn't quite there yet (they'll be there in early 2014, though, I assure you). Mostly, this record is special because it captures a snapshot of the early stages of a promising band's modest missteps and triumphs over the course of a heart-on-sleeve album. It's altogether endearing and youthful. It's You Blew It!.

image

The original artwork was made for CD and frankly, was really, really pixelated even at that size. Realizing this wouldn't work for a 12" LP, we enlisted the help of long-time goto art guy, Ben Sears. The result is an homage to the original with Ben's trademark touch. He's also done the rest of the album layout as well.

You can pre-order The Past In Present on vinyl now in the Topshelf store. It is also available for free download on bandcamp.
