Transit Rockers It’s Casual to Release Full-Length Album

If people couldn't get enough of It's Casual's declaration that "Freeways are not so nice," then no need to wait for Myspace or Youtube pages to load any longer. Boyle Heights based hardcore band It’s Casual will be releasing their full-length album “The New Los Angeles Part I: Through The Eyes Of A Bus Rider” on March 13.

In an interview with Eastside Streetsblog, frontman Eddie Solis explains how he started making  transit inspired music:

“I see LA different because  . . . I take the bus and subway everywhere. And the freeways are just sitting there, and people are in their cars just frustrated about it, but I’m just like sightseeing everyday. So I took that concept and said, you know what, I’m basically going to report on what I see and interpret it.”

Solis' choice of making transit inspired music, with tracks like "Skate or Die" and "EZ Pass," has even inspired talks between a a certain transit website and the band for a future event. (Also, Editor Damien Newton has promised me a video of his two-year-old son jamming out to "The Red Line" that I still have yet to see. You are on notice, Newton.)
