We’re a little down today. I mean, I just assumed that when you started blogging you automatically got tickets to South By Southwest. But here we are, alone in the blog house while everyone else is in Austin, stuck watching that one episode of “Mama’s Family” where they go to Hawaii. Mercifully, one of the best and most underrated bands out there, French Kicks, have dropped this lush new track from their forthcoming album, Swimming, which will be available exclusively on iTunes starting April 1 and in physical form on May 20. The name of the song, you ask? It’s “Abandon.” Fitting indeed. Tour dates and MP3 via Stereogum.
