A couple weeks back, Pete Martin released the second single from his electro-dance project 90 Pounds Of Pete. We posted the first video, “Arms,” here a couple months ago, and I’m glad we didn’t have to wait too long before we got another tune from Martin. More good news for the former Young Jesus drummer, as his old band was inexplicably included in a Rolling Stone piece about the best bands to check out in Chicago (they were one of two bands the article listed who are no longer together-way to do your research Rolling Stone!).
While his old bandmates are pursuing other avenues with the band Bummer, Martin is doing his own thing, and I think he’s making good use of his time. I liked “Arms,” but I think “Promiseland” is even better. The video is also very well done, even if I don’t have any idea what’s going on-what’s the deal with that pig??? I do like that little Garden State homage at the beginning. Check it out below. If you dig what you hear, you can download both singles from Pete’s bandcamp page.
