On our facebook page we recently asked the question “where all the good new music at today doe” and Sporting Life came through with some certified good music. The glory days of indie-rock may have passed, however, Sporting Life is keeping the tradition going strong with their brand of melodic and reverb-tinged music. Like some of my favorite songs lately, it’s not going to change your life and it’s all the better for not trying to.
Sporting Life are back with some more “psychedelic indie ghost rock” having just dropped a bunch of singles/demos on their soundcloud. The collection reminds me of why I was so excited by the group in the first place, with tracks ranging from repetitive noise experiments to proggy epics and lo-fi jams, Sporting Life have one of the more refreshing traditional indie rock sounds in recent memory. My favorite track that they just dropped is the sunny ‘My Bestest Friends’ which has the group pummeling through an incredibly fuzzy and catchy track. This track isn’t even properly finished but it’s still a fantastic listen.
