Yesterday Brandon Moses’s always interesting post-punk band Laughing Man dropped their first release in more than 3 years. Ryan Little, music journo and frontman of Tereu Tereu, put out Be Black Baby on his eclectic Bad Friend Records label, picking up some of the energy set free from the demise of Laughing Man’s previous home with Sockets Records. Of course the video for “Brilliant Colors”, the lead off single from the EP, is shot in moody black and white, taking a tour of DC by way of DIY/DIT venue Hole in the Sky. Laughing Man is pretty unique as a black rock band in a scene that can surely do with a dose of diversity, and “Brilliant Colors” addresses this topic directly. Hit up their EP release show this Saturday night at Back Alley Theatre with Mecca Normal, Cigarette, and Sneaks.
