!Exclusive! The Get Quick -- With Synths

The Get QuickOver at the other blog I promised another dose of exclusive The Get Quick demos and b-sides, and here is where I deliver. As I've editorialized elsewhere, The Get Quick's debut How The Story Goes, released last summer, is a purposefully slick piece of power pop. In the context of the motherlode of unreleased stuff delivered to my door recently, the record is a middle ground that lies between other moodier, spacey material and really amped-up, lysergic rock. Below we're offering two tunes of the former flavor. The first, "Arp Music," is a surprisingly serene, synth-led instrumental that wanders up to a cliff and then falls right off. The second cut, a ballad titled "April Fools," has an undeniable hook that packs a bit of Westerbergian power a la "Answering Machine," (well, with an acoustic guitar). The tunes'll be up for a week, get 'em while you can.
