NPR Music has premiered the video for "Separate Songs" by Restorations. The song will appear on their forthcoming album LP3, due out October 28, 2014 via Side One Dummy Records. Singer and guitarist Jon Loudon told NPR:
"Separate Songs" is one of our favorite compositions off LP3. We got to do all the things we like in here: heinous feedback, giant chorus, too many guitar solos, etc. The song is about throwing your computer out the window.The band also recently recorded a long-form, instrumental track for Call + Response, an (almost) annual art show in Washington, DC that brings together writers and visual artists (co-curated by Punknews' own Kira Wisniewski). The track will be released on a 7-inch limited to 300 copies. The band will be performing at the opening on October 11, 2014.
