12 O'Clock Track: Broken Water, "Say What's on Your Mind"

Alternative rock has been experiencing a bit of 90s nostalgia fever, and the northwest is a hotbed. New bands like Naomi Punk and Milk Music wear their love of heavy, fuzzy guitar licks on their sleeves, and their new takes on the indie-rock stylings of a couple decades ago are pretty great.

Olympia's Broken Water is a standout in the northwest scene, and the band's "Say What's on Your Mind" is today's 12 O'Clock Track.

The melodic tune, from the trio's 2010 full-length, Whet, has some ripping riffs that evoke a more lackadaisical Dinosaur Jr. (Around here, the word "whet" also puts us in mind of former Reader staffer and current Chicago magazine associate digital editor Whet Moser.)

Broken Water is trying to raise money to fund a new album, Seaside and Sedmikrásky. Head to the band's Kickstarter page to find out more.
