Quickdraw: Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires, Cayucas, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Abram Shook, Mates Of State

April 30, 2015


Music!  Enjoy.

:Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires – Sweet Disorder!:  Every time I hit play on this Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires jam, the volume creeps up a level or two higher than it was for the previous listen.  I also get the urge to grab a beer.  The Sweet Disorder! 7″ is due out July 21 via Sub Pop.

:Cayucas – Moony Eyed Walrus:  This new track from Cayucas is one of the most buoyant pop tunes I’ve come across in … well, I don’t know.  I rarely consider how buoyant a song is.  Anyhow, I dig it.  Dancing At The Blue Lagoon is due out June 23 via Secretly Canadian.  See the band at the Parish on August 9.

:Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin – Trevor Forever:  Here’s a catchy slice of power pop from Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.  It makes me want to see the band live.  The High Country is due out June 2 via Polyvinyl.  Catch them at Holy Mountain on August 15.

:Abram Shook – Get Gone:  Leduc and I are so very ready to get our hands on Abram Shook’s sophomore effort.  The two singles released so far (that includes this song) have been total ear pleasers.  Landscape Dream is due out May 12 via Western Vinyl.  See him at the Mohawk on May 15.

:Mates of State – Staring Contest:  Mates of State’s recent show in Austin left me with such a big smile on my face.  It’s good to have them back.  The world is more tolerable when Kori and Jason are churning out charming tracks like this one.  The You’re Going To Make It EP is due out June 16 via Barsuk.

Quickdraw: Mr Little Jeans, The Blank Tapes, Saskatchewan, Cayucas, Pure X

April 29, 2013


Today’s music meant to call you back.  Enjoy.

:Mr Little Jeans – Oh Sailor:  It seems like Mr Little Jeans has put herself in a good spot in 2013.  She was announced as part of the Iron Man 3 soundtrack (along with acts like Passion Pit and Neon Trees), and now there’s this slick single off her own upcoming full length.  The LP is expected out this summer.

:The Blank Tapes – Holy Roller:  Here’s a wonderfully jangly piece of retro pop to help get your Monday going.  The band will release Vacation on May 14 via Antenna Farm Records.  Also, if you’re in Austin,  you can see them tonight at Stubb’s with Matt Costa.

:Saskatchewan – Possession:  This dream pop effort has been stuck in my head for days.  Eventually, I’m just going to have to give in and dance in a dark corner by myself for a little while.  The band’s Occasion is due out tomorrow through Father/Daughter Records.  If you can’t wait a day, the album is streaming here.

:Cayucas – East Coast Girl:  This is a super catchy track that has made me very interested in checking out Cayucas’ debut album, Bigfoot.  If you’re with me, we’ll get our shot tomorrow when it gets released via Secretly Canadian.  Catch the band live on July 13 when they play Red 7.

:Pure X – Thousand Year Old Child:  Pure X may be from Austin, but I don’t really know much about them.  This must come to an end, especially if they’re going to keep putting out songs this good.  Crawling Up The Stairs is due out May 14.  See them at Holy Mountain on May 23.
