♫♪  Platinum Boys - “Candy”

2014 has been the year I crawled back to the temple of rock and begged for reentry. After a near decade of techno, ambient meanderings, I finally said to myself, “Fuck it. I just wanna rock!” And rock I did. Coming straight out of the heartland, Milwaukee’s Platinum Boys are absolutely killin’ it with their grooves. While their recorded output thus far is pretty slim, they hit the road this past month and are ready to invade your home stereo systems with their debut LP, Future Hits. The first single, “Candy,” is too damn good. You just have to listen for yourself to know what I’m talking about. I have yet to hear the rest of the record, but if my friend’s text is any indication (“sounds like Weezer covering no woman no cry”), then we’re in for a treat. The album comes out early 2k15 on tape (via Forged Artifacts) and vinyl (Dusty Medical Records).
