Dum Dum Girls

January 16, 2014

0 Comments

For whatever reason, I totally blanked on the fact that the always great Dum Dum Girls have a new album out this month.  I imagine it’s going to be just as great as their previous releases, but I’m a little surprised that neither of the first two singles have blown up.  The first one (it’s the bonus video today) is super solid, and today’s track is a slice of 80s rock perfection.  What gives, people?  Anyhow, get excited for the album.  Enjoy.

:Dum Dum Girls – Rimbaud Eyes:

Too True is expected out on January 28 via Sub Pop.

Quickdraw: Thee Oh Sees, Radical Dads, Those Howlings, Dum Dum Girls, Mogwai

November 4, 2013

0 Comments

Today’s music totally agrees with you.

:Thee Oh Sees – What You Need:  Only Thee Oh Sees can put out nine albums a year and then still need a separate release for their various one-off tracks, split contributions, and more.  The band will release Singles Collection: Volume 3 on November 26 via Castle Face.  Catch them at Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend.

:Radical Dads – Creature Out:  My favorite thing about Radical Dads is that they seem incapable of making something that’s not filled with enthusiasm.  I find it infectious.  Be sure to grab the band’s new 7″ single when it gets released on November 5 via EAU Records.  In case you missed it, they also put out a full length, Rapid Reality, earlier this year.

:Those Howlings – Paid For You:  Here’s a catchy little number from Those Howlings, who are an Austin act that I’ve been meaning to show some love for a while now.  It’s an endearing piece of retro pop.  You can get the band’s new 7″ single now over at their Bandcamp page.

:Dum Dum Girls – Lost Boys And Girls Club:  I know the Dum Dum Girls are already pretty well known, but I think this track’s particularly polished alt-rock sound will probably attract a slew of new listeners.  Good for them.  The band will put out Too True on January 28 via Sub Pop.

:Mogwai – Remurdered:  First of all, Remurdered is probably the best song title this year.  Secondly, this atmospheric beast of a single means we all get to start 2014 with a new Mogwai full length, and that’s fantastic.  Rave Tapes is due out January 21 via Sub Pop.

Top 50 Songs Of 2012: Part 5

November 30, 2012

0 Comments

It’s Friday, which means we have arrived at the end of my Top 50 Songs Of 2012 list!  I hope you’ve had a good time perusing the previous 40.  In case you somehow missed this little bit of info, I chose the songs from the 400+ tracks that I shared around here throughout the last 11 months.  Enjoy.

10)  :Icona Pop – I Love It:  Much of my 2012 was spent looking to this electropop number for a burst of fun.  I just kind of adore how obnoxious it is.  From the Nights Like This EP.

09)  :Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built:  I think it’s safe to say that with this song, Japandroids are now officially the band everyone looks to when they’re in need of an anthem.  From Celebration Rock.

08)  :David Byrne And St. Vincent – Who:  This track is focused pop madness, and to be honest, that’s exactly what I was hoping the David Byrne/St. Vincent collaboration would unleash onto the world.  From Love This Giant.

07)  :Ellie Goulding – High For This (The Weeknd Cover):  Every year there’s a cover that I can’t get enough of, and in 2012 it was Ellie’s sensual take on this Weeknd track.  I highly recommend headphones.  And booze.

06)  :TV Girl – I Wonder Who She’s Kissing Now:  There’s going to come a year where I don’t get an incredibly catchy and charming retro pop track from TV Girl, and then I’ll immediately become cranky and constantly reference the “good old days.”  From The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle.

05)  :Tame Impala – Elephant:  Of the 50 songs on this list, this is my favorite to try and ruin my speakers with.  It’s actually flaunting some attitude, which is something I didn’t think Tame Impala had in them.  From Lonerism.

04)  :MS MR – Hurricane:  2012 featured a ton of good music that was 90s-enthused, so you know it means something when I say that I found this MS MR song to be the best of the bunch.  From the Candy Bar Creep Show EP.

03)  :Dum Dum Girls – Lord Knows:  This band is so very good, and it’s all because Dee Dee continues to be one of the best songwriters around.  Just listen to the lyrics in this incredible song for proof.  From the End Of Daze EP.

02)  :Twin Shadow – Five Seconds:  I wanted to not use the word “infectious” anywhere in this list, but that’s just exactly what this 80s throwback is.  Good luck trying to ever escape its grasp.  From Confess.

01)  :Purity Ring – Fineshrine:  When I sat down to map out this year’s 50 songs, I already knew what would be in this spot.  That’s actually never happened before, and I give all the credit to Purity Ring, who created a song that’s as fantastic as can be on all fronts.  I will love this track forever.  From Shrines.

PS – You can check out the entire list on one page here, or the majority of the songs here on Spotify.

Dum Dum Girls

August 2, 2012

There’s hardly been a span of time over the last couple of years where the Dum Dum Girls haven’t been pushing a new release.  They really put in a lot of effort, and I salute them for it.  On September 25 the band will present to the world a new EP via Sub Pop titled End Of Daze.  You can check out a track off of it just below.  Enjoy.

:Dum Dum Girls – Lord Knows:  There’s a good chance that this has instantly become my favorite Dum Dum Girls track.  Band main brain Dee Dee sounds absolutely impeccable here, and I love the glimmering arrangement that so badly wants to make you pour over the song’s sad lyrics in a dark corner somewhere.  I hope I get to hear this live very soon.
