Haven't heard much from the Bad Weather California camp since its three-day residency at Quixote's with Akron/Family this past spring. We're guessing that's because the dudes have been busy working on the follow-up to 2009's Young Punks, recorded by Chris Koltay at High Bias Studio in Detroit under the guidance of Akron/Family's Seth Olinsky. Yesterday, the band posted a clip offering a fleeting glimpse of the sessions. Bad Weather California has come a long way in the past decade, and we're eager to hear what's next.
