Generationals

June 26, 2017

0 Comments

I’ve been steadily checking out the singles that Generationals have released this year, but until Mythical (today’s track and the fourth in the band’s series) none of them had really caught my attention.  I’m guessing I just like that it sounds like old Generationals.

The band hasn’t yet announced a new album, but I’m assuming that at some point all of these songs will end up on an official release.  Enjoy.

Quickdraw: Saint Pepsi, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, Love Inks, Generationals, Speedy Ortiz

July 14, 2014

0 Comments

Music!  Enjoy.

:Saint Pepsi – Fiona Coyne:  For those of you who’ve been scrambling to find THE song of the summer, I think this catchy as hell Saint Pepsi jam is it.  Turn it up and share it with everyone (even those who don’t want to hear it).  The Fiona Coyne/Fall Harder 7″ is due out August 12 via Carpark.

:Letting Up Despite Great Faults – Wrapped:  I feel like I’ve been waiting an eternity to share this song with you (#AdvancedAlbumProblems).  It’s pop perfection and will instantly make you have strong feelings for Letting Up Despite Great Faults.  The rather good Neon is due out August 12.  Come see the band at their SOTO sponsored album release show at Holy Mountain on August 16.

:Love Inks – Shoot 100 Panes Of Glass:  Here’s the first track off of Love Inks’ follow-up to last year’s rather solid Generation Club.  I think it’s a can’t-miss listen for those of you who dig minimalist pop.  The Austin-based band will release EXI on September 9 via Republic Of Music.

:Generationals – Gold Silver Diamond:  The fellas in Generationals aren’t capable of doing anything but crafting really enjoyable pop songs, so it’s totally not surprising that this first single off their new album is as light and breezy as can be.  The band will put out Alix on September 16 via Polyvinyl.

:Speedy Ortiz – Bigger Party:  “I’m sorry for the time I made out with all your friends/I’m really a shithead.”  This line has made me chuckle an absurd amount of times, which probably means I have a maturity problem.  Thanks for that, Speedy Ortiz.   The Adult Swim Singles Series is where this track can permanently be found.

Quickdraw: Generationals, Jens Lekman, Widowspeak, Guards, Hands

January 10, 2013

0 Comments

Today’s music was crafted by the elves.  Enjoy.

:Generationals – Spinoza:  If I made a quick list of the “best news” that this week has delivered, Generationals announcing a new album would be somewhere near the top.  They’re such a fantastic pop act, which you will see for yourself via this hooky gem.  Heza is due on April 2 through the always lovely Polyvinyl Records.

:Jens Lekman – Olivia And Maddy:  Like all things from Jens, this is an absolute charmer.  Yes, that means you’re pretty much guaranteed to feel the need to smile whenever you decide to hit play.  Sorry.  The track is just a one-off single, so grab it while you can.

:Widowspeak – Thick As Thieves:  This band keeps rolling out singles from their upcoming album, and I keep getting more anxious for its release.  Molly Hamilton has the sort of voice that grabs my attention and just won’t let go.  Captured Tracks will release Almanac on January 22.

:Guards – Ready To Go:  I really dig this track.  It’s very warm and inviting, and I just can’t get enough of the moments where it soars.  In Guards We Trust is going to be a hell of an effort if it has anything else on it that’s as good as this.  The album is due out February 5 via Black Bell.

:Hands – Trouble:  Here’s a band that just signed with Kill Rock Stars this week.  This first single is a fun, upbeat number, and I’m certainly curious to see what else they have to offer.  Synesthesia is expected to be released on April 30.

Quickdraw: Gypsy And The Cat, Yellow Ostrich, Generationals, Shrag, Wooden Wand

October 8, 2012

Today’s music is based on a true story.  Enjoy.

:Gypsy And The Cat – Bloom:  Here’s a duo that’s based out of Melbourne.  They’ve got a fairly trendy retro pop sound, but I like this track a lot, and I’m anxious to hear more from them.  The Late Blue is the name of their new LP, and it’s expected out early next year.

:Yellow Ostrich – Ghost:  I love this band so much that I liked this song before I even took the time to listen to it.  So, there’s that.  In any case, I recommend headphones for this slow burning gem.  Expect the Ghost EP to be out on October 23 via Barsuk.

:Generationals – Sale City:  This act’s show at the Mohawk on November 20 just can’t get here fast enough.  They’re really turning into a stellar pop band, and it’s making me anxious to see them live again. The Lucky Numbers EP just came out via Park The Van.

:Shrag – Obscenity Begins At Home:  If you want a quick bit of catchiness today, then this Shrag track is ready to please.  I’ve found it difficult to not just keep it on repeat.  The song is part of a 7″ that was released via Wiaiwya-7777777.

:Wooden Wand – Southern Colorado Song:  I feel like this song is probably too much for a Monday-level attention span, but it’s so well done that I had to post it up.   Expect to get lost in it.  Blood Oaths Of The New Blues is due out January 8 via Fire Records.

Quickdraw: Slam Donahue, Divine Fits, Generationals, Sky Ferreira, The Album Leaf

September 4, 2012

Today’s music was found by the guy who invented Labor Day.  Enjoy.

:Slam Donahue – C’mon, C’mon:  I’ve been getting emails about this band a lot this year, but this is the first time that I’ve really liked one of their songs.  It’s a breezy and infectious piece of pop, and I imagine that you’re going to join me in digging it.  You can expect to see the Hemlock Tea EP on October 2 via Cantora Records.

:Divine Fits – Would That Not Be Nice:  For some reason I totally blanked on posting this last week.  Shame on me.  Anyhow, this super group of sorts (it features Britt Daniels of Spoon and Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade) just released their debut.  It’s good.  You need it.  The full length is titled A Thing Called Divine Fits, and it’s out now on Merge.

:Generationals – Lucky Numbers:  I’ve been hoping all year for something new from these guys, and now my dream has come true!  This overly pleasant, synth-filled pop tune is the first taste off their upcoming EP.  The three-song effort is titled Lucky Numbers, and it’s expected out on October 2.

:Sky Ferreira – Everything Is Embarrassing:  There’s a good chance that I was supposed to already be aware of this girl, but I didn’t know she existed until this weekend.  Is her other stuff any good?  Somebody let me know.  As for this song, it’s a slinky one.  Be careful.  Sky will release the Ghost EP on October 2 via EMI.

:The Album Leaf – Descent:  To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I sat down and listened to an Album Leaf record.  It may have been college?  Regardless, it’s good to see them still working.  This track, as is usually the case with their stuff, makes for great headphone material.  You’ll be able to pick up the Forward/Return EP on September 18.
