Jessie Jones – “I Ran So Far”
No, it’s not a Flock of Seagulls cover. “I Ran So Far” is the third song we’ve heard from Jessie Jones’ upcoming self-titled Burger debut. “I keep running, but I don’t know why,” she sings over a countrified gallop, her exacting diction and vocal tics helping to capture the feeling of unsettled wanderlust. Pearl Charles comes out July 28. Hear it via Spin.

S.F.’s Mike Donovan of great psych-rockers Sic Alps has a new band called Peacers, whose self-titled debut album comes out tomorrow on Drag City. Give the video for “Laze It” about half a minute before the Stones riffs and psychedelic surf imagery gets going.
