Stoner Control - "Learning to Swim"

We seem to be on a 90's inspired rock kick lately, and the latest from Stoner Control is right on that track. The Portland, OR based band have released "Learning to Swim," which is going to be impossible to resist if you grew up going to shows from '96 to '99. It's that fuzzy kinda power pop that dominated during that time period (at least it dominated my little college rock world...) It even has the slightest touch of roots/Americana that I never would have admitted music I liked had back then. It's a huge slice of bands like The Lemonheads, Superdrag, and the less acoustic side of Ben Lee.

You can listen to "Learning to Swim" below. Sparkle Endlessly is due out on March 19. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Stoner Control, check out the band's Facebook.
