Checking in with old friends

Can Joann: "After the Seizure's Gone"
"Indecision's Way"
(from Hurt People Hurt People 2006. Out soon -- check here for purchase info.)

The Balance: "Runnin"
(demos for forthcoming EP)

I'm a bit short on time today, so here's an update on some folks that I've written about before. Can Joann [previously] has a touch of the Rosebuds about their energetic pop-inflected rock songs, but with more of an indie edge (and so less of the slightly retro Rosebuds feel). Joel Peck's soaring vocals lead the band through some really catchy songs. These are two songs from the band's new album, due out any time now. They're playing a CD release show next Friday (5/12) at King's in Raleigh with Hotel Lights [previously] and Shakermaker.

The Balance [previously] is working on a new EP and evidently not playing out much. "Game" is in the same indie rock vein as their previous work, but "Runnin" suggests a new, folk/country direction as well.
