Quickdraw: Swearin, Haim, Popstrangers, Crystal Antlers, Widowspeak

October 7, 2013

Today’s music loves your shoes.  Enjoy.

:Swearin – Dust In The Gold Sack:  There will soon come a time where I’ll be able to put on the Speedy Ortiz and Swearin albums back to back, and it’s going to be glorious in the way that only 90s-enthused indie rock can be.  The band will release Surfing Strange on November 4 via Salinas.  Catch them at the Mohawk on December 10.

:Haim – Edge:  Here’s a technically new one from Haim that was produced by George Lewis Jr. (aka Twin Shadow).  It sounds like Haim doing a Twin Shadow track, which I think is pretty great.  You can get Days Are Gone now via Columbia, but if you want this track with it you’ll have to pick up the deluxe UK iTunes edition of the album.  The band’s next show in Austin is this weekend during round #2 of ACL.

:Popstrangers – Rats In The Palm Trees:  I haven’t listened to the album that Popstrangers put out earlier this year, but this new single makes me want to.  They make really pleasant guitar-driven pop music.  Expect to be able to grab the Rats In The Palm Trees 7″ on November 5 via Carpark.

:Crystal Antlers – Licorice Pizza:  This track is a quick burst of punk fun, and I dig it.  If only the title didn’t totally gross me out, though.  Crystal Antlers are all set to put out Nothing Is Real on October 15 via Innovative Leisure.  You’ll be able to see them on October 19 at the Mohawk.

:Widowspeak – Calico:  I had two chances to see Widowspeak this weekend, and I missed out on both of them.  This well crafted number makes me regret that.   The Swamps EP will be made available to the world on October 29 via Captured Tracks.  See them play this weekend at ACL.

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.
