Runaround Kids - Drinking History/We Are Losers - Talk

The latest in the mighty Runaround Kids' convoluted 2012 release plans is a split 12" with Dublin based We Are Losers out July 9th, two new tracks from each plus one cover of the other. It's no bad thing that this is a little more US west coast then we're used to from Wakefield's actual finest and a whole lot Pavement-esque, but it's still packed tight with wound up guitars and plenty of emotional involvement.

As for We Are Losers, their line of attack is filtered through Guided By Voices' submergence of classic guitar pop hooks in lo-fi flavouring, sweetened by harmonies, sugared by sentiment.

The two bands are playing together round Ireland at the end of the month - 27th Dublin Twisted Pepper, 28th Limerick Bourkes, 29th Galway Roisin Dubh - and Runaround Kids have also been called up for Beacons Festival.
