Chelsea Wolfe

September 12, 2017

It just dawned on me that Chelsea Wolfe’s upcoming show at the Paramount is during ACL, which means it’s rather unlikely that I’ll be able to go.  Dang it!  On the bright side, her latest single is great and now I’m more pumped than ever to check out her upcoming album, Hiss Spun (due September 22).  Enjoy.

Chelsea Wolfe

This morning I spent some time with the new song from The Killers and its awfulness drove me to wanting something heavy and raw.  Enter Chelsea Wolfe!  She just announced her sixth album, Hiss Spun (due 9/22), and put out a glorious rocker of a single called 16 Psyche.  I’ve already listened to it four or five times.  Be sure to turn it up.  Also, if you’re in Austin, be sure to see her at the Paramount on October 6.  Enjoy.

Quickdraw: Titus Andronicus, Widowspeak, Lower Dens, Mas Ysa, Chelsea Wolfe

June 11, 2015

Music!  Enjoy.

:Titus Andronicus – Fatal Flaw:  Here’s another raucous good time from the one and only Titus Andronicus.  If this track doesn’t make you want to go wild, you should seek help immediately.  The Most Lamentable Tragedy is due out July 28 via Merge.  See them on September 20 at Red 7.

:Widowspeak – Girls:  This new Widowspeak single is one of the more pleasant things I’ve heard in 2015.  I love Molly Hamilton’s inviting vocal work and the meandering arrangement is delightful.  All Yours is due out September 4 via Captured Tracks.

:Lower Dens  – Maneater (Hall & Oates Cover):  For fun (I assume), Lower Dens performed this Hall & Oates cover live during a recent Sirius XMU session.  The original will always be my favorite version, but I definitely dig the moody twist that’s been applied here.

:Mas Ysa – Gun (Featuring Nicole Miglis):  This powerful duet with Nicole Miglis (of Hundred Waters) is the latest and greatest effort from Thomas Arsenault (aka Mas Ysa).  I’m impatiently waiting for the day I can take his debut album and devour it with a good pair of headphones.  Seraph is due out July 24 via Downtown Records.  See him July 17 at Red 7.

:Chelsea Wolfe – Carrion Flowers:  Unsurprisingly, I’m all about this crunchy, haunting wall of sound from Chelsea Wolfe.  There’s something about her weirdness that always pulls me in.  Abyss is due out August 7 via Sargent House.  See her September 19 at the Mohawk.

Quickdraw: American Sharks, The Orwells, FIDLAR, Crystal Antlers, Chelsea Wolfe

July 25, 2013

Today’s music doesn’t believe in curfews.  Enjoy.

:American Sharks – XVI:  Much of my 2013 has seen buzz for Austin’s American Sharks, and this power kick to the face of a song makes it easy to understand why.  I can’t wait to see them on Friday when they open for the Sword at Red 7.  The band will release their self titled debut in September via The End Records.

:The Orwells – Who Needs You:  There’s plenty to like about this year’s ACL lineup, but The Orwells are one band in particular that I’m actually anxious to see.  I know “infectious” is a word that’s super over-used these days, but it’s pretty much the best way to describe these guys.  The Who Needs You EP, which is their second release of 2013, is due September 10 via East End/Canvasback.

:FIDLAR – Awkward:  I actually posted this song last year, but FIDLAR have resurrected it for a tour-only split 7″ with The Orwells.  The guest spot from Kate Nash is gone, and it’s sporting a cleaner sound.  I think I like it more than the original.  The band is also playing ACL.

:Crystal Antlers – Rattlesnake:  I’ve long appreciated Crystal Antlers, but this song is so good that now I’m wondering if I should have been giving them even more attention.  Talk about inspired stuff.  The will release the Rattlesnake single on September 24 via Innovative Leisure.  A full length is expected at some point.

:Chelsea Wolfe – We Hit A Wall:  This is a really intense track.  I dig it, and I won’t be surprised if I end up spending a good chunk of time with Chelsea’s upcoming LP.  Pain Is Beauty is due out September 3 via Sargent House.  She will play the Mohawk on September 6.
