New Music From the Inbox: Featuring The BB Guns, Girl Band, Here Is Your Temple & Strange Names
Toronto indie band The BB Guns were featured on the awesome compilation album Psych Pop From Toronto late last year and now they have announced they will be releasing a new EP. The 4-song Baby I Hate You was produced by Brain Borcherdt (Holy Fuck/Dusted) and will be available May 7th via Marineville Records.
Watch the video for the fun surf punk song "Pennie Lane" that was partially shot at Toronto's Sunnyside Beach (best place in Toronto to run....and drink beer) and the Parkdale No Frills grocery store ( a place where I used to buy groceries regularly).
The BB Guns will be opening for Bleached at The Silver Dollar Room here in Toronto tomorrow night.
