Today's Quick Mention: There are a ton of shows
set for this weekend, but you should pick either of the
following to attend tomorrow night. The first is Marmalakes,
Wild Child, Shakey Graves, and Sadie And The Blue-Eyed
Devils at the
Parish, and the other is Moonlight Towers,
Oh No Oh My, Burgess Meredith, Tacks The Boy Disaster, and
the Frank Mustard Project at
Today's music was found in a wild kangaroo's pouch. Enjoy.
People's Temple - Looter's Game:
apparently had a well-received debut full length last year,
but I totally whiffed on it. Where were you guys on
that one? In any case, this is two minutes of pure
garage rock fun, and I'm ready to check out more. The
band will release the nicely titled More For The Masses
at some point in September via Hozac.
By Trees - Dreams:
you've had a rough week, this track will help you.
Victoria Bergsman, who is the main brain behind TBT, really
crafted something that just sweeps you off your feet and
puts you in a better place. Other Worlds is due
out October 2 through Secretly Canadian, and you'll be able
to see the band play the Mohawk on November 13.
Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Only In My Dreams:
There's a good chance this is one of best retro pop songs
that 2012 will deliver, but since the band has yet to keep
my attention for an entire album, I think I'll try to keep
my excitement in check. You'll be able snatch up
Mature Themes on August 21 via 4AD, and there will be a
chance to see them live at the Mohawk on September 7.
Li - Silver Springs (Fleetwood Mac Cover): Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute To
Fleetwood Mac is due out on August 14 via Hear
Music/Concord, and I think it's going to make for one
interesting listen. I mean, just look at this inspired
cover from Lykke Li. What if they're all this good!?
That would result in needing months to work up the strength
to take it off repeat.
Light Moving - Groovy And Linda:
seems to be having a good time with CLM, and that's just one
of those things I consider to be great for the planet
This track is oddly catchy, so be prepared to have it stuck
in your head for a while. There's still no official
word on when a full length is due, but I assume it'll be
some time before the end of the year.
