Music!  Enjoy.

:Deerhoof – Criminals Of The Dream:  I’ve quickly become attached to this overly pleasant new single from Deerhoof.  Can’t wait to hear the new album.  The Magic is due out June 24 via Polyvinyl.  See the band at the Mohawk on August 16.

:The Faint – Young And Realistic:  To coincide with the announcement of their tour with Gang of Four, The Faint put out his track.  Get ready to want to danse.  The band will be at Emo’s on October 15.

:Brand New – I Am A Nightmare:  Here’s an anthemic new one from Brand New, who haven’t released anything since 2009′s Daisy.  I’m into it.  The I Am A Nightmare 12″ will be out in June.  See the band with Modest Mouse at Austin360 Amphitheater on July 23.

:Father John Misty – Real Love Baby:  I can’t say I’ve ever felt the need to fully board the Father John Misty hype train, but I do really like this song – it’s so warm and catchy.  Grab this one while you can, as it’s a one-off effort.

:Okkervil River – Okkervil River RIP:  This is a slow-paced, nearly seven minute ball of sadness from Okkervil River.  You should strap on some headphones before you hit play.  Away is due out September 9 via ATO Records.

Over the last few days Deerhoof have really gotten things moving for their new album.  They first released a song called Debut (it’s down below in video-form), then announced some tour dates, and now there’s another track, Plastic Thrills, that’s made its way into the world.  The first tune (to me anyways) sounds pretty much how you’d expect Deerhoof to sound, but the second is a raw. energetic number that really jams.  I like it a lot.  Enjoy.

Quickdraw: Meatbodies, Wampire, Ariel Pink, Deerhoof, Mr. Gnome

September 11, 2014

1 Comment

Music!  Enjoy.

:Meatbodies – Disorder:  Just in case you don’t know, Meatbodies is lead by Chad Ubovich, who also plays in Mikal Cronin’s band and FUZZ.  I think the act’s upcoming album is going to a raucous good time. The self titled effort is due out October 14 via In The Red.

:Wampire – The Amazing Heart Attack:  The first single off of Wampire’s new full length hinted that it might be time to take them seriously, and now there’s this second track to really drive that point home.  I say we all grab a spot on the bandwagon while there’s still room.  Look for Bazaar on October 7 via Polyvinyl.

:Ariel Pink – Put Your Number In My Phone:  Ariel Pink in album-length form always tends to be a bit much for me, but I sure do love his singles.  This jangly, somewhat hazy tune is definitely another gem on the pile.  Pom Pom is expected out on November 18 via 4AD.

:Deerhoof – Paradise Girls:  Here’s a pleasantly weird (and of course, really catchy) new track from Deerhoof.  I assume the world will just instantly end if the veteran act ever actually manage to run out of ideas.  The band will release La Isla Bonita on November 4 via Polyvinyl.

:Mr. Gnome – Rise And Shine:  Mr. Gnome haven’t put out an album since 2011, and you can totally tell when you listen to this song.  Not that it sounds rusty or anything like that, there’s just a ton of enthusiasm in it that clearly says the band is happy to be back.  The Heart Of A Dark Star is due out November 18 via El Marko Records.

Quickdraw: Thurston Moore, Half Japanese, Deerhoof, Joanna Gruesome, Charli XCX

August 21, 2014

Music!  Enjoy.

:Thurston Moore – The Best Day:  While I would have preferred to get a another Chelsea Light Moving album, I’m still excited about a new Thurston Moore solo effort (his first since 2011′s Demolished Thoughts).  This single is a spectacularly crafted piece of alt-rock.  The Best Day is expected out on October 21 via Matador.

:Half Japanese – Our Love:  I’ve really been loving the new Half Japanese tracks (listen to another one).  What’s especially crazy is that they’ve been around for 40 years and haven’t put out an album since 2001′s Hello, and yet they still sound more hip and enthusiastic than most bands out there.  Look for Overjoyed on September 2 via Joyful Noise.

:Deerhoof – Exit Only:  Here’s a loud, wonderfully weird new one from the magnificent Deerhoof.  Their albums are always a fun/intersting time, so I’m looking forward to the new one (13th overall, yeah?).  La Isla Bonita is due out November 4 via Polyvinyl.

:Joanna Gruesome – Psykick Espionage:  Joanna Gruesome just announced a split with Trust Fund, and now they’ve lined up another with Perfect Pussy.  This track is rather manic, but I think that’s what makes it great.  You can expect the 7″ to be released at some point later this year via Captured Tracks/Slumberland/Fortuna Pop.

:Charli XCX – Break The Rules:  And so we come full circle with the spiritual successor to Icona Pop’s I Love It arriving from the girl that was featured on it – Charli XCX.  Consider me curious to see what else is on her upcoming LP.  Sucker is due on October 22 via Neon Gold/Atlantic.  See her at Emo’s on October 17.

Famous Class’ Less Artists, More Condo series has already delivered tracks from A Place To Bury Strangers, Ceremony, Future Islands, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Thee Oh Sees, and the Mallard, but I think their best entry is their latest release, which features Deerhoof and Half Waif.  Check out the former’s song below, and then head to Bandcamp to “pay what you want” for it.  All of the proceeds go to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music.  Enjoy.

:Deerhoof – Sexy, But Sparkly:  This has instantly become one of my favorite Deerhoof tracks.  It’s bouncy, refreshing, and oddly catchy.  Yes, that’s the description for most songs by this band, but this effort is those three things to the fullest.

Quickdraw: Com Truise, GRMLN, Rubblebucket, Deerhoof, Dunes

August 20, 2012

Today’s music was discovered using a metal detector.  Enjoy.

:Com Truise – Chemical Legs:  I’m not usually a fan of vocals that sound like they’re coming from a robot, but the style works for me here.  I think it might be because the rest of the song is so stellar.  This Com Truise track is from the 2012 Adult Swim Singles Program, which has really been on a roll the last few weeks.

:GRMLN – Coral:  This pop number is such a warm and endearing listen that its two minute runtime is almost an annoyance.  I want more.  A 19 year old by the name of Yoodoo Park is the main brain behind GRMLN, and he will release the Explore EP on October 23 via Carpark Records.

:Rubblebucket – (Focus) Oversaturated:  The press release that came along with this track was packed with all sorts of press quotes.  Where the hell have I been?  In any case, this is one of those effortless pop songs that should instantly win you over.  The Oversaturated EP is due out September 11, and the band will play in Austin at the Beauty Ballroom on September 26 with Reptar.

:Deerhoof – Fete d’Adieu:  Deerhoof are one of the best experimental pop acts around, and that should be reason enough for you to give this song a shot.  If you disagree, you’re crazy.  The band will release Breakup Song on September 4 via Polyvinyl Records.

:Dunes – Vertical Walk:  I saw this band open for local favs the Sour Notes on Saturday, and I came away really impressed.  If you like your pop with a bit of haze and fuzz, then I think you’ll dig the LA-based DunesNoctiluca is currently available for your love.
