New Tunes: "Return to Me," Bandleader

Bandleader: Coal, Pressure, Time 

For the past several months, Burlington-based rockers Bandleader have been hard at work on their debut LP, a crowd-funded effort recorded — as all indie records are now legally required to be in a post-Bon Iver world — at a cabin in the woods. That album, dubbed Coal, Pressure, Time, won't reach our ears until October 1, reportedly with a Monkey House gig on or around that date.

In the meantime, the band recently released a single, "Return to Me," to tide fans over for the next few weeks. Not to be confused with the Dean Martin classic of the same name, it's a sneakily catchy, fat-bottomed little charmer seemingly informed by mid-1990s alt-rock and laced with just a touch of pop-punk precociousness — the latter especially in lead vocalist Patrick McCormack's playfully casual delivery.
