Coming To Your Local Bandstand: The Joggers

Lovably angular indie rock quartet The Joggers will take to the streets for its first tour of the year in the second week of March. The jittery Portland, Ore.-based act released its remarkably solid second effort With A Cape And With A Cane last fall and is riding the positive buzz all the way to several South By Southwest dates and beyond. "Beyond" being Missoula, Montana and other hotspots in the middle of the country. And then there's a whole other tour with Pretty Girls Make Graves later in the spring. Anyway, in Internets time last fall was like 75 days ago. So in the event you need to be sold all over again on the altogether excellent musical juggernaut that is The Joggers, avail yourself of this MP3 that StarTime International was kind enough to send along. The track is "Since You're Already Up" and it is a sing-alonger, hand-clapper and fist-banger all rolled up into one song. And the glorious guitar tone! We forgot how much we liked this. Tour dates below the MP3 link, dig?
