I don't remember how I stumbled on the free download of the new EP from Atlanta post-hardcore five-piece Campaign. Aside from making me think about Hot Water Music, among other similar-sounding Gainesville bands, there's a lot to like about these guys.

Campaign - Old Haunts
The songs are easy to listen to, and they've got a blog - It Likes To Party - which they use as a home base, mostly to give their music away. The latest EP, Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! is made up of four songs, each of which includes the word "old" in the title. It's a little weird, but the band is singing about combining cheap wine and old records for a more than satisfying night shutting out the world. I can dig that sort of thing, which should explain how they ended up on this blog.
My only complaint is that they're all wearing jean jackets on the cover of the EP. Come on guys, you can do better then that. Hit up Goodwill for some old t-shirts or something cause all that denim is really freaking me out.
