Radio Free Chicago is no stranger to Capgun Coup, having posted their song "Bad Bands" earlier in the fall. Now that the Omaha native's sophomore effort has finally hit the shelves, the band's wasted no time in hitting the road and getting more tracks on to the internet for mass consumption. Following the raw, fun track "Bad Bands", Capgun Coup has brought us "Sitting on the Sidewalk", which together show quite a bit of promise for their latest release, Maudlin.
Vaguely reminiscent of the messy, DIY rock and roll of local boy Ezra Furman with a dash of surf and Ramones-era punk thrown in, "Sitting on the Sidewalk" has served it's purpose for me by becoming a nice break in the acoustic and folk monotony I often get stuck in when Autumn in the Midwest rolls around.
In the "Awesome Tour" department, Capgun Coup is hitting the road with Cursive this fall. Don't get excited yet, though, Chicagoists, the closest the pairing is getting to your hometown appears to Iowa.Capgun Coup - Sitting On The Sidewalk
