We dare you to listen to Deadbeat Beat's two new songs only one time

We're in love with these two new tunes Deadbeat Beat just uploaded, a pair of previously unreleased songs recorded live in 2016 by audio engineer Chad Stocker (of the High Strung) at Lo and Behold! Records and Books in Hamtramck, MI for the Milo Show, the monthly local music YouTube series created by Jeff Milo and Kristi Billings.

This music is alive with that candy-coated experimentalism one finds in those Kiwi underground songs from the 1980s that we all know and love, but this is no copy-cat silliness.

The tunes are available now to stream/download online, and will be for sale on cassette tape this Saturday at the Loving Touch in Ferndale, when the trio supports local whimsical folk-rock faves Frontier Ruckus at the release party for their new album.

Deadbeat Beat will also be heading out on an East Coast tour later this Spring.
