Quençebo, a bold, confident fusion of garage and dreampop, anthemic in scope and thrilling in the execution. Seven songs are Francesco's original compositions, and the band added an excellent version of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends". This is a powerful little package, bursting with joy, melody and energy. You will be thankful for the replay button.
Quençebo is available now via Jigsaw records as a digital download or CD. See the Bandcamp link below.

We've been singing the praises of Washington, D.C.'s Dot Dash for several years. Actually, as I look at that first sentence I feel the need for a correction. We have been writing praises of Dot Dash -- we've left the singing to them. Trust us, it is better that way. Much, much better. And as the holiday season is in full flight, there is a Dot Dash gift for everyone. Due to the kind folks at the Last Day Deaf blog, a five song sampler is available to stream and download for $0. Yes, indeed. A free song from each of the band's excellent albums. You can stream it below. If you would like to download the songs (and of course you do), hit the Soundcloud link below and then click on each song in turn for the download arrow. So there you go -- Merry Christmas from Dot Dash, Last Day Deaf and, a little bit, from us at WYMA.
