Quickdraw: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, Bass Drum Of Death, Coma Cinema, The Men, Beach Day

April 15, 2013

0 Comments

Today’s music knows what you’ve been doing.  Enjoy.

:Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr – Hiding:  Here’s a bouncy, super accessible pop track from DEJJ.  Their Patterns EP will be available digitally tomorrow via Warner Bros Records.  For a physical copy you’ll have to wait until Record Store Day (4/20).  Also, catch the band at the Parish on May 11.

:Bass Drum Of Death – Shattered Me:  John Barrett has readied a follow-up to 2011′s GB City, and this is the first single off of the album.  I think it’s a fine piece of garage rock.  The self titled LP is due out June 25 via Innovative Leisure.  BDOD will play Austin Pysch Fest later this month.

:Coma Cinema – Satan Made A Mansion:  Mat Cothran’s work as Coma Cinema has always been pretty lo-fi, so it’s nice to see that he’s made a move towards fancying up his sound a bit.  Posthumous Release will be out on June 11 through Fork & Spoon Records/Orchid Tapes.

:The Men – B Minor:  My appreciation for this band has always been a bit inconsistent, but I have to admit that this face melter is sort of perfect for the arrival of much warmer temperatures here in Texas.  You’ll be able to find this track on the Sacred Bones‘ Record Story Day compilation, Todo Muere: Volume 3.  The band will play Chaos In Tejas next month.

:Beach Day – Boys:  A couple of weeks back I shared a rather catchy little tune from this act, and now I’m posting up more of the same.  Their upcoming album just keeps looking better and better.  Trip Track Attacked is expected out on June 18 via Kanine Records.

Quickdraw: The Thermals, Mikal Cronin, Frank Smith, Beach Day, Jonny Fritz

April 1, 2013

0 Comments

Today’s music found all of the eggs this weekend.  Enjoy.

:The Thermals – The Sunset:  You have to love how consistent the Thermals are.  I don’t think they could make a song without a great hook and the perfect amount of fuzz even if they wanted to.  The band will release Desperate Ground on April 16 via Saddle Creek.

:Mikal Cronin – Weight:  There’s an artist ready to claim the world, and his name is Mikal Cronin.  If you’re not already on his bandwagon, then be sure to use this indie rock gem as an excuse to climb on.  The highly anticipated MCII is due out May 7 through Merge.

:Frank Smith – Chewing Glass:  Lately the name Frank Smith has been all over the place, and that’s definitely a good thing.  The local group (it’s not just a guy named Frank Smith) has a lot of quality rock tracks that deserve some attention.  Nineties is due out tomorrow.  You can catch the band at Holy Mountain with East Cameron Folkcore, Growl, and the Preservation on April 13.

:Beach Day – Beach Day:  I love my lady-lead retro pop, and that’s exactly the sort of music that Beach Day churns out.  I’m assuming this means the band and myself will probably end up being best friends.  You’ll be able to snatch up Trip Trap Attack on June 18 via Kanine Records.

:Jonny Fritz – Goodbye Summer:  Are you guys loving Jonny Fritz yet?  You should be.  Everything about the guy comes off as authentic, which is somewhat of a rare treat these day.  The rather properly titled Dad Country is due out on April 16 via ATO Records.

Quickdraw: Madison, Guards, The Mary Onettes, Crushed Out, Beach Day

November 19, 2012

Today’s music makes up the last Quickdraw of 2012.  Enjoy.

:Madison – Sweet Life:  I like the direction that Madison is heading in.  She’s still doing what I consider guilty pleasure pop, but it’s got a particular focus to it that’s rather nice.  The We’ve Been Nothing EP is expected to be released on February 5.

:Guards – Coming True:  This reminds me a lot of 90s alt rock, and I think that’s why I find it to be a pretty great track.  I can’t wait to hear more of their new stuff.  In Guards We Trust is due out February 5 via Black Bell.

:The Mary Onettes – Evil Coast:  Here’s another wonderfully crafted pop song from the Mary Onettes.  I’m not sure these guys know how to make anything that doesn’t sound immaculate.  The band will release their third LP, Hit The Waves, in March via Labrador.

:Crushed Out – Push Down Twist:  Formerly known as Boom Chick, this act makes catchy garage rock.  I like it.  Want To Give is available now via Cool Clear Water Records.  The band plays Hotel Vegas this Friday.

:Beach Day – Walking On The Streets:  I really dig this little retro pop tune.  It makes me want to watch old movies.   The band just put out a 7″ via Kanine Records.  Pick it up!
