Friday Thing: Role Models - The Go-To Guy

Role Models are back with their long-awaited first LP, The Go-To Guy.

This was never not going to be this week's Thing, even before I'd heard it. The hooky, punky, powerpop theme from previous Role Models releases recurs in tightly concentrated form, and the songs are better than ever. It's also really cool to hear reprisals of old favourites Cherry Dear and Reality Holiday, with re-recordings both looser and more energetic than their earlier incarnations.

I can see this one becoming a firm 2015 favourite (hey, I should do a top 10 Thing if I make it that far). Get it on bandcamp and have a guaranteed good weekend.
