Today's music was recommended to me by Xenu. Enjoy.
Raveonettes - She Owns The Streets:
As is always the case with this act, they're busing
working it. Roughly two weeks ago they put out a new
soog, and now here they are already pushing another one.
If you've ever even slightly liked any sort of fuzzy retro
pop, then you can expect to dig this track. The anticipated
Observer is due out on September 11 via Vice Records.
This band, which is lead by
former Here Go Magic member Teeny Lieberson, is quickly
becoming a favorite of mine. They may not necessarily
bring anything new to the indie rock table, but their stuff
is well crafted and interesting enough to keep me coming
back. You'll be able to get your hands on In Limbo
when Carpark Records puts it out on August 28.
Good - Summer Explosions:
For a while now I've liked the Austin-based Sleep Good, so
I'm happy to finally be sharing one of their tracks.
You're going to like it. Unless, of course, good pop
music is something you prefer to live without. Pau Wau
Records just put out the Monsanto 7". Pick up a
copy or two, and then check out the video that the band did
Islands - Cotton Flower:
For so long I've semi-scoffed at the overly dramatic
ways of this band, but I think it's actually what makes them
great. They just embrace all the emotions ever.
Also, they're pretty good at writing songs that get stuck in
my head. The split 7" that they made with Ed
Schrader's Music Beat is currently available via Famous
Summer - Slow Days Fast Company:
I listen to
this and hear a song that more than likely would have been a
big hit on the radio in the 90s, but I won't hold such a
thing against it. The damn thing is catchy, and it
makes me want to walk around and high five people while
eating Mentos. The band is all set to release the
Slow Daze EP on July 31.
