Quickdraw: Yung, The Julie Ruin, Diarrhea Planet, Weaves, Car Seat Headrest

April 12, 2016

0 Comments

Music!  Enjoy.

:Yung – Uncombed Hair:  In the press release that came along with this sharp indie rocker there’s a part where Yung main brain Mikkel Holm Silkjaer mentions that “this one is dedicated to bad things and good people.”  I like that line.  Youthful Dream is due out June 10 via Fat Possum.

:The Julie Ruin – I Decide:  When Kathleen Hanna popped up in this P.O.S. track, it got me wondering if she and The Julie Ruin were still a thing.  Yep!  In fact, they just joined the Hardly Art roster and announced a new album.  Neat.  This first single is really catchy.  Hit Reset is due out July 8.

:Diarrhea Planet – Let It Out:  Just in case you’re under the impression that Diarrhea Planet only churn out party anthems, here’s a fairly low-key effort from them.  Turn To Gold is due out June 10 via Infinity Cat/Dine Alone.

:Weaves – Candy:  Holy cow.  This is one hell of a song by Weaves.  I’ve been a big fan of theirs for a while now, but I can’t say I knew they could rip it up like this.  The band’s self titled album is due out June 17 via Kanine.

:Car Seat Headrest – Fill In The Blank:  If my love for Car Seat Headrest (aka Will Toledo) has been making you feel confused, then give this song a shot.  It’s by far his most accessible effort yet, and it just may convince you to jump on his bandwagon.  Teens Of Denial is due out May 20 via Matador.

Diarrhea Planet

Wednesday is usually when I run my SHOW OF THE WEEK column, but since SXSW is here and 1) that’s just a total cluster to even deal with on a show-listing front and 2) I really only want you to come to the Austin Town Hall & Side One Track One Showdown this Sunday anyways, I’m giving you music instead.  Don’t fret though, the song is by the glorious Diarrhea Planet, who just announced a new album (by the way, you should read the huge piece on them over at Buzzfeed – it’s good).  Be sure to turn it up loud.  Enjoy.

:Diarrhea Planet – Life Pass:

Turn To Gold is due out June 10 via Infinity Cat Recordings.

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.

Quickdraw: Trail Of Dead, Diarrhea Planet, Shivery Shakes, Viet Cong, Nothing

October 16, 2014

0 Comments

Music!  Enjoy.

:And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead – A Million Random Digits:  Just last week I noted that the upcoming Trail Of Dead album could be a really good one, but now there’s this second single and I’m just ready to say that it for sure will be.  I haven’t heard the band sound this great since 2009′s The Century of Self.  Seek out IX when it gets released on November 11 via Superball.

:Diarrhea Planet – Bamboo Curtain:  While I tend to prefer my Diarrhea Planet dialed all the way to 11, their “slower” tunes are far from bad.  Case in point, this 90s-esque pop rock tune that’s voiced by drummer Casey Weissbuch.  The Aliens In The Outfield EP is due out November 18 via Infinity Cat.

:Shivery Shakes – Recurring Dreams:  Austin’s own Shivery Shakes will soon release their debut full length, and I’m sure it’s going to be a wonderfully breezy, easily accessible pop effort.  If you haven’t already, make a note about them.  Three Waves & A Shake is due out on October 21 via Austin Town Hall/Punctum.

:Viet Cong – Continental Shelf:  If you’re like me and have been a little slow to fully come around on Viet Cong, then this song is going to completely change that.  It’s a fantastically crafted piece that I can’t seem to take off of repeat.  The band will release their self titled album on January 20 via Jagjaguwar.

:Nothing – July The Fourth:  About midway through my first listen of this shoegazey effort I couldn’t help but notice that Nothing sound like a more raw version of Whirr.  Then I realized that this track is the flip side of a split 7″ with Whirr.  I should probably go outside or something.  The Whirr/Nothing 7′” is due out November 17 via Run For Cover.

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

September 29, 2014

1 Comment

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.

Quickdraw: Diarrhea Planet, Action Bronson, Roses, Speedy Ortiz, Bass Drum Of Death

August 7, 2014

0 Comments

Music!  Enjoy.

:Diarrhea Planet – Spooners:  Here’s the track that Diarrhea Planet did for Adult Swim’s Single Series.  If you can listen to it and not want to immediately grab a beer and find somewhere to rock and party your face off, then you’re dead on the inside.

:Action Bronson – Easy Rider:  I’ve been impatiently waiting for Action Bronson to release something new, so I was pumped when this song popped up the other day.  It’s the first single off of his upcoming LP and it’s immaculately produced by his usual cohort, Party Supplies.  A new album titled Mr. Wonderful is on the way via VICE/Atlantic.

:Roses – The Fog:  Roses are a newer band (started by Juan Velazquez, formerly of Abe Vigoda) that I’ve quickly become fond of.  Recently I shared their excellent song It’s Over, and now I have another somewhat new wave, largely 90s-enthused gem for you.  The Dreamlover EP is out now via Group Tightener.

:Speedy Ortiz – Lost Something In The Hills:  All week I’ve been really digging this Sibylle Baier cover that Speedy Ortiz did for Rookie Magazine.  They’re a band that usually blast right out of the speakers, so it’s nice to hear them slow things down a bit.  Also, the lyrics here are fantastic.

:Bass Drum Of Death – Left For Dead:  I’m not sure how those who you love the fuzz that Bass Drum of Death usually pack will react to it being replaced by a cleaner, straight up rock n’ roll sound, but I don’t mind it.  At least they’re still really hooky.  The band will release Rip This on October 7 via Innovative Leisure.

Burger Records (Dan)

February 19, 2014

0 Comments

Like it or not, SXSW is just around the corner. I can’t say I’m ready for it, but I’m getting there. I’m currently working on the follow up to last year’s DC vs Austin show, but since we’re not yet ready to release the details for that party, I figured I’d suggest another SXSW show.

If you love garage rock as much as I do then you’re probably aware of Burger Records. It’s an independent record label and record store in Fullerton, California. The label was founded in 2007 by two members of Thee Makeout Party. The record store opening followed soon after in 2009.

So what makes Burger Records so special? First, they are known for releasing most of their music on cassette. Their loyalty to an outdated but cheap music format helped spark a most unlikely resurgence in tapes. I personally don’t long for the days of listening to music from the tape deck of my 1986 Ford Tempo, but to each his own.

My love of Burger is not because of cassettes. It’s all about the music. They have released tracks by some of the great garage bands of the past decade: Bad Sports, Black Lips, Diarrhea Planet, King Kahn & The Shrines, Hunx And His Punx, King Tuff, Mikal Cronin, Ty Segall, and Thee Oh Sees.  There are also a number of Austin bands on Burger Records as well – Grape St, Holy Wave, John Wesley Coleman, and The Zoltars (go see them on 3/1 with La Snacks at Spiderhouse!) all have released music through Burger.

I also love Burger’s DIY attitude. When I was younger I idolized Fugazi and everyone at Dischord Records for paving their own way. They set the example for punk and hardcore bands on how to succeed on their own terms. The founders of Burger Records have a different model for their business but the DIY motivation is the same.

All of that is to say that you must hear these incredible Burger bands next month during SXSW. The Burger’s 5th Annual SXSW Kickoff is on Wednesday, 3/12 at Trailer Space Records. Then the big party, Burgermania III, is on Saturday, 3/15 at Hotel Vegas. You can listen to the sampler below and also stream The Studio B Sampler and Taste of Burger Records.

Top 25 Albums Of 2013: Part 2

December 12, 2013

0 Comments

Here’s another 10 of my favorite albums of 2013.  Jump back tomorrow for the top five on my list!  Enjoy.

15) Polica – Shulamith

If you’re pessimistic and happen to remember how high my expectations were for Polica’s Shulamith, then you might look at this “middle of the pack” placement and call the album a disappointment.  Believe me though, that would be silly.  Lots of great tracks to be had on this one.

:Polica – Chain My Name:

14) The Mantles – Long Enough To Leave

If I had things my way, everyone would start including the Mantles in the first wave of bands that roll out of their mouth whenever the Bay Area comes up in conversation.  Long Enough To Leave is loaded with very catchy retro pop tunes.

:The Mantles – Hello:

13) The Octopus Project – Fever Forms

The Octopus Project have long been a solid act, but I think Fever Forms is proof that they’re actually a great one.  I’m excited to see where they go from here.

:The Octopus Project – Whitby:

12) Diarrhea Planet – I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

Only one album in 2013 actually made me want to throw up rock horns in a non-ironic way, and it was Diarrhea Planet’s I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.  Listen loud.

:Diarrhea Planet – Separations:

11) Haim – Days Are Gone

The girls in Haim have been making music for most of their lives, so of course Days Are Gone is packed with some of 2013′s better crafted pop songs.  On another note, this album is a sing-a-long lovers dream.

:Haim – The Wire:

10) A Giant Dog – Bone

Pop punk is fun stuff, but I usually wear the albums out and then promptly shuffle on to something else.  This didn’t happen with A Giant Dog’s Bone though, the songs are too good to just let go of.

:A Giant Dog – All I Wanted:

09) Kanye West – Yeezus

Kanye West’s Yeezus is such an intense album that I can’t listen to it on a regular basis.  With that being said, I think it’s a stellar piece of work from one of the biggest, most interesting pop stars on the planet.

:Kanye West – New Slaves:

08) Thee Oh Sees – Floating Coffin

Thee Oh Sees release so much music that I always move on to whatever new thing they’re doing instead of allowing the “old” effort to settle.  Floating Coffin managed to hook me though, and I plan on jamming the gloriously kinetic album for years to come.

:Thee Oh Sees – Maze Francier:

07) FIDLAR – Self Titled

FIDLAR seem like an act that could fizzle out at any moment, so I’ve been loving them while I can.  Their self titled debut is as catchy and loud as I hoped it would be when the band first popped up on my radar last year.

:FIDLAR – Cheap Beer:

06) Sigur Ros – Kveikur

I didn’t think Sigur Ros had a bombastic post rock album in them at this point, but Kveikur is just that.  If their last few efforts were too far out in left field for you, then this one should win you back.

:Sigur Ros – Kveikur:

Top 50 Songs Of 2013: Part 5

December 6, 2013

2 Comments

Well, this is the end of it.  Feel free to comment and mention anything I may have missed.  Otherwise, take in all the songs, and then join me next Wednesday through Friday for my Top 25 Albums of 2013.  Enjoy.

PS – You can check out 47 of the 50 tracks on this list on Spotify here.

10)  :Jonny Fritz – Ain’t It Your Birthday:  If I were doing a list of the year’s most fun songs, there’s a good chance I would slap this in the #1 spot.  Jonny Fritz is a rad dude.  From Dad Country.

09)  :Veronica Falls – Buried Alive:  This song is so hopelessly romantic.  And well made.  And catchy.  And just awesome.  I’ve actually listened to it so much that I’m surprised I didn’t burn myself out on it.  From Waiting For Something To Happen.

08)  :Quasi – You Can Stay But You Gotta Go:  The return of Quasi was fronted by this wonderfully sloppy 90s-ish indie rock track.  It deserves to be played at a volume that might get you evicted.  From Mole City.

07)  :Ellie Goulding – Tessellate (Alt-J Cover):  This is actually the second year in a row that Ellie Goulding has landed a one-off cover in the top 10 of my song list.  If you ask me, that probably means she should hurry up and do a covers album.

06)  :Haim – The Wire:  I know everyone digs Falling, but this is the song that made me appreciate/love Haim.  It’s like Shania Twain meets arena rock, which is weird but apparently what I’ve always wanted.  From Days Are Gone.

05)  :Diarrhea Planet – Separations:  Yes, the name Diarrhea Planet is silly.  Now with that out of the way, please allow this song to rock your soul.  From I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams.

04)  :Yuck – Middle Sea:  Yuck lost a frontman and then just continued on like it was nothing.  That’s impressive.  I think this is one of the best songs in their catalog.  From Glow And Behold.

03)  :Chvrches – Recover:  The Mother We Share is a great track (that ranked high on my song list last year), but part of me feels like this is Chvrches’ best single.  Such synth-pop goodness.  From The Bones Of What You Believe.

02)  :Mikal Cronin – Shout It Out:  I was so very close to putting this Mikal Cronin gem in the top spot.  It really is one of the better pop rock songs to come along over the last year or three.  From MCII.

01)  :Vampire Weekend – Step:  It wasn’t until I sat down to do this list that I realized just how much I adore this Vampire Weekend track.  I think it’s an endlessly impressive piece of pop music that’s totally deserving of all the time and attention you can spare.  From Modern Vampires Of The City.

Quickdraw: Desaparecidos, The Samps, The Blow, Frankie Rose, Diarrhea Planet

August 5, 2013

0 Comments

Today’s music does not believe that Saturday night’s alright for fighting.  Enjoy.

:Desaparecidos – Te Amo Camila Vallejo:  Of all the acts that have reunited in the last year or so, it seems like Conor Oberst’s Desparecidos has been met with the least amount of excitement.  Bummer.  I think they’re a great punk band.  This track is one side of their latest 7″, which is available now.  See them play the Mohawk on October 30.

:The Samps – Overnight Lo:  This is a really slick effort, and it makes me wish The Samps would release music on a more consistent basis.  For now, though, I’ll just have to settle for a compilation of sorts (it has 2010′s EP and a few unreleased tracks) called Macrochips And Microdips that’s due out August 28 via Big Love.

:The Blow – Make It Up:  Once I was able to move on from how I’m old and it’s been seven years since The Blow released Paper Television, I found this track to be a real charmer.  The dance act will release a self titled album on October 1 via Kanine.  Catch them at Red 7 on November 2.

:Frankie Rose – Sorrow:  I really liked Frankie Rose’s Interstellar, so I’m happy to see her back so quick with a new effort.  This pleasant pop song makes me think her new album is going to be super lush.  Herein Wild is due September 24 via Fat Possum.

:Diarrhea Planet – Babyhead:  As of right now, I don’t think there’s an album that I’m anticipating more than the one from Diarrhea Planet.  I’m just convinced it’s going to be full of rad anthems.  This is the third single off of I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, which is due August 20 via Infinity Cat Records.
