"Dixie Motel Two-Step" 7" by Clearance
Clearance! Clearance! Clearance! Well, good people of the Interwebs, clearance prices just don't come any better than free. To be more precise, prices for Clearance EPs don't come any better than free. And right now, the fine lo-fi guitar pop of Dixie Motel Two-Step can be downloaded from the Bandcamp link for that very, very attractive price. If you would like a vinyl artifact with accompanying digital download, you can accomplish that transaction via Bandcamp as well.
Clearance are Mike Bellis (guitar and vocals) and Arthur Velez. They originally started playing around Ann Arbor, then wisely moved to the City of Big Shoulders. Their engaging sound reminds me of Kiwi greats The Clean and The Bats, as well as some of the wonderful pop coming out of Melbourne lately (Boomgates, Dick Diver, Lower Plenty). I assure you, the market has undervalued Clearance, and you are the beneficiary. Four winning songs, one low price. What do I have to do, press the button for you?
