Checking in with a band I profiled last year, UK upstarts The Blanche Hudson Weekend have been busy posing in black and white photos and making new music. The five member buzz-rock outfit will have a new album out later in the year, but have this quick-blast of awesome for us.

The single will be out on Odd Box Records on May 7th.
Their debut album, You Always Loved Violence, is available for download in the U.S. on Amazon. If you are lacking in retro showgaze and dream pop, I highly suggest you take a listen.
