Cherry Glazerr

Cherry Glazerr’s first single off of their upcoming LP initially underwhelmed me, but then it got stuck in my head and I had to share it.  The band’s new tune, to be honest, is more of the same.  At first it made me shrug my shoulders, and now here I am shoving it into your ears.  What’s the deal with that?  Anyways, I get the feeling that their album is going to be an interesting one.  Enjoy.

Today I’m rolling out the latest song from Cherry Glazerr.  It’s the trio’s first single via their new label, Secretly Canadian, and I’m into it.  To be honest though, I didn’t start out a fan of the track.  When I first gave it a listen I thought it sounded like a band who’s trying too hard, but I’ve come around now (that guitar riff is wildly catchy) and I’m genuinely happy to be sharing it with you.  Enjoy.

Quickdraw: Ratatat, Weaves, Parquet Courts, Cherry Glazerr, Beck

June 18, 2015

Music!  Enjoy.

:Ratatat – Abrasive:  Here’s the new single off of Ratatat’s upcoming album.  I’m assuming that titling it Abrasive was some kind of inside joke because it’s immaculately crafted and a total joy to listen to.  Magnifique is due out July 17 via XL Recordings.

:Weaves – Tick:  Shame on me for missing out on this squirrely little jam by Weaves when it was released a couple of weeks back.  It’s really damn good.  I believe the band’s debut album will be out later this year.  It’ll probably be great.

:Parquet Courts – Pretty Girls (Joey Pizza Slice Cover):  “Sunshine is a mother fucker/Pretty girls is a mother fucker/Happiness is a mother fucker”  Now that’s a positive message!  Parquet Court’s split 7″ with Joey Pizza Slice (they cover each other on it) is due out August 11 via Wharf Cat.

:Cherry Glazerr – Sip ‘O Poison:  The Adult Swim Singles series is back!  I’ve always liked how it allows bands to operate outside of their usual comfort zone, and Cherry Glazerr definitely are doing that here.  I didn’t think they had such an aggressive sound in them.

:Beck – Dreams:  I know it’s only June, but I’m pretty certain we can go ahead and label this new one from Beck as the definitive song of this summer.  What an immensely infectious effort it is.  The Dreams single is out now.

Top 50 Songs Of 2014: Part 4

December 4, 2014

0 Comments

We’re nearing the end of my Top 50 Songs of 2014 list!  Look for the final ten songs tomorrow.  For fun, here’s parts ONE, TWO and THREE.  Enjoy.

20)  :Cherry Glazerr – Had Ten Dollaz:  Cherry Glazerr are a really young trio (two of them aren’t even 18) who are already way cooler than any of us will ever be.  If you don’t believe me, just listen to this attitude-laced gem.  From the Had Ten Dollaz single.

19)  :Deleted Scenes – You Get To Say Whatever You Want:  This song is so emotive that it’ll either pull you out of a funk or completely toss you into one.  I love it.  Deleted Scenes are the best.  From Lithium Burn.

18)  :Dana Falconberry – Palmless:  Austin’s own singer/songwriter extraordinaire Dana Falconberry collaborated with Spoon’s Jim Eno on this track.  It’s a pretty spectacular listen on all fronts.  From Public Hi-Fi Sessions 02.

17)  :Little Big League – Property Line:  I’m all about the 90s revival that’s currently underway, but even if I wasn’t I think I’d still dig this Little Big League track.  It’s just about as sincere as can be.  From Tropical Jinx.

16)  :Diarrhea Planet – Spooners:  ”It’s all about the drugs, money, power, and getting off.”  Well said, Diarrhea Planet.  Well said.  From the Aliens In The Outfield EP.

15)  :Sheer Mag – What You Want:  I stumbled across this riffy piece of retro rock back in October and I’ve been jamming it (probably too much) ever since.  If you’re not on Sheer Mag’s bandwagon, you should be.  From the band’s debut 7″.

14)  :Tune Yards – Real Thing:  This track is Merrill Garbus (aka Tune Yards) throwing everything at a wall and somehow having all of it stick.  Hard not to be impressed, you know?  From Nikki Nack.

13)  :Dum Dum Girls – Rimbaud Eyes:  I have a variety of mixed feelings about the latest Dum Dum Girls’ album, but I can’t really complain since it features this immaculate pop tune.  From Too True.

12)  :Cloud Nothings – I’m Not Part Of Me:  Here’s my favorite single off of the album that Cloud Nothings put out earlier this year.  The 90s-rock lover in me just can’t get enough of it.  From Here And Nowhere Else.

11)  :Mikal Cronin – Soul In Motion:  Mikal Cronin knew that not putting out any new music in 2014 would hurt my feelings, so he contributed this fantastic song to Famous Class’ 7″ series.  What a guy!  From LAMC #11.

Cherry Glazerr

Cherry Glazerr are a band that I’m on the verge of being obsessed with.  I came across them about month ago via the spectacular slice of indie rock that is the single Had Ten Dollaz, then I started to dig on the album that currently resides on their Bandcamp page, and now I’m all about their latest tune, Nurse Ratched.  The trio just completely project cool out of whatever they do, and it’s really fun to listen to.  Enjoy.

:Cherry Glazerr – Nurse Ratched:

The Had Ten Dollaz/Nurse Ratched 7″ is out now on Suicide Squeeze.

Quickdraw: Diarrhea Planet, Cherry Glazerr, Tennis System, Weed Hounds, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

September 29, 2014

Music!  Enjoy.

:Diarrhea Planet – Heat Wave:  This is a great song, but I have to admit that I’m currently operating in a place where I’ll post anything that Diarrhea Planet puts out.  The band is just too fun and too on point right now for me to even consider not sharing their stuff.   The Aliens In The Outfield EP is due out November 18 via Infinity Cat Recordings.

:Cherry Glazerr – Had Ten Dollaz:  Cherry Glazerr’s press release says they’re an “astonishingly young” trio (two of them aren’t old enough to vote and the other is just over 21), but they certainly don’t sound like it.  This song is dripping with confidence and is pushing out a fairly calculated vibe.  I like it.  A lot.  The band will release the Had Ten Dollaz/Nurse Ratched single on October 28 via Suicide Squeeze.

:Tennis System – Dead Honey:  Throughout the weekend I found myself wanting to frequently revisit this new one from Tennis System.  I love the driving arrangement and the vocal work is pretty great, too.  Technicolour Blind will be released on October 21 via Papercup Music.  See the band at Cheer Up Charlie’s on October 14.

:Weed Hounds – Harbor:  It took them five years (apparently), but Weed Hounds have finally readied a full length.  If you have a fondness for shoegaze and/or 90s indie rock, then you can expect to dig what the band has crafted.  You can either buy their self titled album in a variety of formats or you can download it right here for FREE.

:The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Summer Of Dreams:  Here’s a pleasant selection from the new extended version of the album that The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart released earlier this year.  The songwriting is a bit cheesier than usual for the band, but I think that overall the track is a good one.  The deluxe edition of Days of Abandon is available now via Yebo.
