Today's Quick Mention: There are a couple of
nice shows worth catching tonight. King Tuff and
Natural Child are set for
Red 7, and Winter Sounds and Good Field
A raven from Winterfell delivered today's music. Enjoy.
In Round - One-Sided:
something that's been hanging out in my inbox for far too
long. It's an especially well crafted piece of pop
with a rather nice, meandering pace that's perfect for the
summertime. I'm expecting it to make your Monday 20%
better. The band just released their self titled debut
full length with the help of La Societe Expeditionnaire.
White Wires - All Night Long:
I love it when a song is
super catchy, and that's exactly what this is. Good
luck escaping it. I know I haven't been able to since
it showed up on Friday. By the way, anyone familiar
with their last couple of LPs? Let me know if they're
worth checking out. WWIII is set to be released
on July 31 via Dirtnap Records. I'm excited to give it
Collection - One Thousand Sins:
Permanent Collection is the new effort from San Francisco's
Jason Hendardy, who is also in Young Prisms. I think
this is a cool track, but make sure you get yourself ready
to be delivered a fairly large dose of fuzzed out glory.
Newly Wed Nearly Dead is expected to be put out on
August 7 via Loglady Records.
Banks - Summertime Is Coming:
I've yet to figure out what Paul (of Interpol fame,
in case you don't know) was doing under the Julian Plenti
moniker, but I'm at least on the fence in regards to the
work that carries his own name. There's a pleasantness
to it that's easy to like. The Julian Plenti Lives
EP is out now via Matador. A full length is expected
in the fall.
Island - Independence:
To be honest,
this track probably has too much of whatever makes a person
want to sit alone and stare out a window for three days ...
but I like it anyways. Just make sure to do yourself a
favor and grab some headphones before hitting play.
These Athens-based fellas put out Frightened last
week. You should give it a shot.
