I caught Canadian classic rock throwback outfit Zeus
at an Arts & Crafts showcase at the Mercury Lounge
two and a half years ago. Needless to say, it was one of the most delightful surprises of my tenure as a Baeble intern. They capture 70s/80s Americana rock & power pop better than most American throwback acts, and they have a new album, Classic Zeus
, coming out 9/2. A video-lite for one of the album's lead-off singles "Straight Through the Light" dropped this week, and this acid-drenched psychedelic tune has me excited for the new record.
