Today's Quick Mention: There's not a
lot worth catching tonight, but if you do decide to
get out you could head to 29th Street Ballroom for
the Wolf, Shivery Shakes, Sexploits, and Unknown
These songs should make your Monday better. Enjoy.
Memories - Softly:
I think this might be the quickest two minute track
I've come across in a long time. It starts, I
get wrapped up in its large amount of charm, and
then I feel as though I'm immediately scrambling to
hit play again because the song has already come to
an end. The band will release their self
titled debut on April 24 via Underwater Peoples.
Time - Clouds:
If you're from Austin then you've probably heard by
now that this act had to change their name from
Yellow Fever to Deep Time. As for their sound,
it hasn't been altered. They're still doing
quirky pop music that carries a lo-fi edge.
This gem can be found on their self titled full
length, which is due out July 10 on Hardly Art.
While their debut last year was a favorite of mine,
I think this is the sort of band that could just
release singles. I mean, can you imagine
getting something new from these guys every couple
of months? That would be awesome in so many
ways. This fuzzy effort is expected to show up
on some sort of physical release later this year.
Fawning - Anchor:
I feel like I
should already be aware of this act, but this song
(that's been floating around the web for a month or
so) is serving as my introduction to them.
They're good. I especially like how the music
is dramatic, but not in an exhausting way.
A Monument is expected to be delivered to the
world on May 15 via City Slang.
Cream - John Johnny:
This song makes me want to flip over a table.
Sure, that's not exactly what the lyrics are calling
for, but everything about the track is sporting that
particular kind of raucous attitude, and I want to
give the band what they're looking for. The Ty
Segall-produced Super Treatment is expected
out on May 8 through Infinity Cat Records.
