Today's Quick Mention: It's been a bit since
I've directed you to my Tumblr creation,
Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, so that's
what I'm doing now. Go there and do some reading,
Today's music was found using Google Maps. Enjoy.
Light Moving - Frank O'Hara Hit:
At some point this Thurston Moore-lead project is
going to put out an official album, and I'll be there to
throw my money at them. The three tracks released so
far (this one arrived in celebration of Moore turning 54)
have all been great pieces of indie rock. If anything
does come out, it'll by way of Matador.
Up Despite Great Faults - Visions:
I wasn't aware of this, but
apparently this act is now largely based in Austin.
Why haven't they called me to hang out? Bummer.
Anyhow, this dreamy pop number has instantly become one of
my favorite songs by LUDGF. The band is all set to
release Untogether on October 9 through their
Lerche - Boxing Day:
This guy has always been a hit or miss kind of artist for
me, but I think it's pretty cool that he's re-releasing his
first four albums. Naturally, the discs are now
populated with bonus tracks and outtakes, and this gentle
pop tune is one of them. The LPs will be
available on September 4, and he will be playing in Austin
at Stubb's on September 29.
- California Dames:
About a year ago these guys put out a pretty solid
EP, and now they're back with a little two song effort.
I've only heard this one track, but it's psych pop goodness,
and I'm imagine the other tune is just as satisfactory.
The California Dames/Pilot Wings 7" is currently
available in exchange for sweet cash over at White Iris
Mountain Goats - Cry For Judas: The
world loves the Mountain Goats, so I'm guessing you've
probably already come across this song 100 times over the
last few days. Still, it's a good one, and there's
always that "better late than never" thing to justify
sharing it. The
band will release Transcendental Youth on October 2
via Merge Records.
