Today's Quick Mention: Here are two things that
are movie related: 1) I updated my
Tumblr over the weekend with a review of
Sylvester Stallone's Over The Top. Read it,
please! 2) Tonight I'm seeing The Amazing
Spider-Man. Look for a breakdown first thing in
Today's music was found in the wreckage of the Titanic. Enjoy.
Oh Sees - Lupine Dominus:
When I saw
these guys in San Francisco late last year I decided I would
start paying them a lot more attention. So, here I am
happy to give you a new, noisy gem from their upcoming LP.
Blast it hard, friends. Putrifiers II is due
out September 11 via In The Red Records, and you'll able to
see them play here in Austin at La Zona Rosa with Ty Segall
just four days later.
Tucker Band - Groundhog Day:
To be honest, I kind of figured
Corin was going to one and done us with 2010's 1,000
Years, so her return is certainly a pleasant surprise.
She has one of my favorite voices of all time, and I love
that this track indicates a return to some of her fierce
Sleater-Kinney days. Kill My Blues is expected
out September 18 via Kill Rock Stars.
Raveonettes - Observations:
Somehow the Raveonettes just keep chugging along and
consistently putting out quality releases. Where does
all the material come from? Don't they want to sit on
the couch and watch TV for a year or so? Anyhow, this
is a hazy, headphone worthy number that I like quite a bit.
Vice is all set to release Observator on September
- Waitin' 4 U:
And with this song, these guys fully have my
attention. Their first track (it was titled Make It
Known) at least put me on the fence in regards to them,
but this piece of retro goodness has me willing to stand on
their side and invite others over. Take The Kids
Off Broadway is expected out everywhere on July 24
- The Way It Is:
Portland-based act features members of Blitzen Trapper and
Alela Diane's Wild Divine, and they craft the sort of music
that will make you want to hang out on a back porch
somewhere instead of wherever you are at this moment.
That's not so bad, right? Their self titled debut full
length is due out on August 14.
