Listen: Deleted Scenes’ “Future of Hair Metal”
D.C. indie rockers Deleted Scenes graduated from local Sockets Records to mid-sized indie Park the Van in April, and their first release for the label—a reissue of their 2011 sophomore album, Young People's Church of the Air—is out this week. We reviewed that thing last September; even if you picked up a copy at one of the very prolific band's shows, you may wanna grab version 2.0: It's got four bonus tracks, including an acoustic version and a remix of "Bedbedbedbedbed," plus two more songs, "Future of Hair Metal" and "Bedbedbedbedbed" B-side "Challenge Club."
"Future of Hair Metal" contains some thematically appropriate falsetto and a herky-jerky pulse, a creative decision that lands Deleted Scenes somewhere closer to Sparks than Ratt. Take a listen below:
You can pick up a copy of Young People's Church of the Air via Park the Van. The band celebrates the rerelease July 21 at Red Palace along with Spinto Band. $10-$12.
