Grass Is Green – “Big Dog Tee Shirt Birthday Weekend”

After seeing multiple performances by them last year, it was pretty clear to me that Grass Is Green would have a great 2014. Next week sees the release of their fantastic Vacation Vinny and the continuation of a tour supporting Speedy Ortiz, but before that they’ve shared one more song (following “Vacation 2.0” and “Sammy So-Sick“). While the previous tracks are dizzying with their unpredictability and angularity, “Big Dog Tee Shirt Birthday Weekend” comes charging right in with a fanciful guitar hook and keeps its glowing fire burning throughout the entire track. Listen below and check out their tour dates below.
