Though they shared it with Noisey
first, Deadbeat Beat sent over this killer new track recorded by Jeff Else at his studio in Alden Park, and mastered by Gordon Smith along with a reminder about upcoming dates at UFO and then opening for GBV. We're happy to share it with you in case you've not heard it yet.
We sent along some thought-provoking questions to Maria, Zak, and Alex, and they replied as follows.
: Five things in Detroit you are excited about, now?
: Detroit's really beautiful in the summer, and this summer, we can't wait to take the Q-Line to see Kid Rock at Little Caesars Arena, and then get all hopped up on craft cocktails in Corktown and have to crash at the Shinola Hotel.
: Four reasons you cannot wait to go on this tour?
:We're excited to see friends, play outside Michigan for the first time in too long, spend Easter in a record store with cool bands, and go to the MoMA when we're in NYC.
: Three songs you are obsessed with:
Deadbeat Beat:"Sure Thing" by the Dream Syndicate, "Mad" by Solange, "Saxophone Song" by Kate Bush.
: Two turtle doves (sorry, that doesn't even qualify as a 'Dad joke') and one thing that makes you so mad you cannot even think?
: Obvious reality of icky 2017 politics aside, the death of the Goodwell's pocket sandwich still hurts.
