mp3: "April 41st" - Walter Etc.

It was apparent from their last video that Walter Etc. make the kind of catchy, undeniably charming music that's impossible to forget. Following the release of a recent split and EP, the band announced the details of a full length, Gloom Cruise with Lauren Records/ Lame-O Records due out August 25. The song begins with the pronouncement of a non-existent date of birth, "April 41st" and continues weaving a playful, fuzzy tale of growing up and learning to embrace all the quirks that make each of us unique and different from the people that surround us. Its lighthearted nature makes it a kind of musical hug, to encourage us through whatever awkward phase we're moving through.
