I think the thing to do this year is to support your favorite bands any way you can. Minor Victories is a supergroup that is planning to put out a record later this year. Do whatever you can to reward such things:
Minor Victories is the supergroup of Slowdive's Rachel Goswell, Editors' Justin Lockey,Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite, and James Lockey of Hand Held Cine Club. Today, they've announced their debut album. The self-titled record is out June 3 on Fat Possum (US) and PIAS (worldwide). It'll feature Mark Kozelek's previously reported duet with Goswell, as well as a collaboration with the Twilight Sad's James Graham. Below, watch the Hand Held Cine Club-directed video for "A Hundred Ropes," featuring a band of samurai charging over a hill in extremely slow motion.
