COOLRUNNINGS: "Spirit of the High"

COOLRUNNINGS is one of the new breed of bands who self-promote via cheap-yet-brief releases through Bandcamp (in this case cheap meaning "name your price") and hope that their all caps moniker will be more likely to draw your attention than the e.e. cummings school of lower case prescritivism that some bands practice.  They're obviously not SHOUTING AT YOU because one listen to "Spirit of the High" reveals a band immersed in their own rollicking chill, neo-psych pop rather than -wave derivative, masculine and brash but not too in your face about it... THAT'S WHAT THE BAND NAME IS FOR!
