Quickdraw: Shabazz Palaces, Garden City Movement, PS I Love You, Austra, Spider Bags

May 12, 2014


Music!  Enjoy.

:Shabazz Palaces – They Come In Gold:   I’ve never exactly been a huge fan of Shabazz Palaces, but that’s not stopping me from championing this killer track.  Maybe their upcoming full length will finally inspire me to fully climb up on their bandwagon.  Lese Majesty is due out July 29 via Sub Pop.

:Garden City Movement – Terracotta:  Garden City Movement are out of Tel Aviv, and they’re just about to release a new EP (it’s the follow-up to last year’s Entertainment EP).  The music reminds me a lot of Purity Ring.  Expect the Bengali Cinema EP to be set free on June 23 via BLDG5.

:PS I Love You – For Those Who Stay:  I can’t say I ever figured PS I Love You had a sprawling six and a half minute song in them, but that’s exactly what this is.  And it’s good!  Their new album is now on my anticipated list.  Look out for the currently untitled effort at some point in July via Paper Bag Records.

:Austra – Habitat:  Here’s one from Austra that was recorded due to fans frequently requesting an official version.  It had only previously existed as part of the band’s live set.  The Habitat EP will be released on June 17 via Domino.

:Spider Bags – Back With You Again In The World:  And the latest band to join the Merge roster is … Spider Bags.  Yeah, I know, it’s a terribly unattractive name, but don’t let that stop you from digging the riffy, Men-like quality of their sound.  Frozen Letter is due out on August 5.

Quickdraw: Empress Of, Daytona, Diane Coffee, Cymbals, Garden City Movement

November 11, 2013


Today’s music knows your secrets.  Enjoy.

:Empress Of – Realize You:  I really love Empress Of.  She (Lorely Rodriguez) doesn’t seem capable of repeating herself, which I appreciate.  As of now, there’s no word on if this track is just a one-off single or if it will appear on an album.

:Daytona – Honey:  If Daytona’s upcoming full length isn’t on your radar, it should be.  I think it has the chance to be really nice pop effort.  You’ll be able to pick up the band’s self titled album on November 19 via Ernest Jenning.

:Diane Coffee – Gov T:  I hadn’t previously thought of Diane Coffee as being Tame Impala-esque, but this track definitely comes off that way.  Grab this unreleased song while you can.  The band’s My Friend Fish is out now on Western Vinyl.

:Cymbals – Erosion:  Here’s a new single from Cymbals that kind of reminds me of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.  I have no complaints about that.  The Age Of Fracture is due out on February 4 via Tough Love Records.

:Garden City Movement – Move On:  While digging around Pitchfork this weekend I found this rather headphone-worthy effort.  It’s a beautiful, intimate track, and I really like it.  Garden City Movement will release an EP on BLDG5 in the near future.
