Quickdraw: Big Deal, Honeymoon, GRMLN, Boyfrndz, Camera Obscura

May 20, 2013

Today’s music is willing and ready.  Enjoy.

:Big Deal – Dream Machines:  If you don’t have Big Deal’s upcoming album on your “anticipated” list, then you need to whip out your pen and scribble it in.  So far in 2013 they’ve released three stellar singles, and I can’t wait to check out what else they’ve crafted.  June Gloom is due on June 4 via Mute.

:Honeymoon – Sure Stuck:  Here’s a new act that was created by Aaron Shanahan and Benjamin Plant.  The pair of producers apparently wanted to do something that reflected their love of 60/70s psych pop, and I think they nailed it.  A full length is expected out at some point in the summer.

:GRMLN – Do You Know How It Feels?:  I haven’t spent a ton of time listening to the Yoodoo Park-lead GRMLN, but this catchy bit of 90s-enthused indie rock makes me want to.  So, maybe I will.  Empire will be available on June 4 through Carpark Records.

:Boyfrndz – Water Weight:  I’ve liked Austin’s Boyfrndz for a while, but I think this is the first time they’ve really impressed me.  This is a great track with a big, adventurous sound.  Natures is due on July 16th via Boyfrndz Records.

:Camera Obscura – Fifth In Line To The Throne:  It’s unlikely that I’ll ever tire of how impeccable Camera Obscura always sound.  I mean, just listen to this!  The damn thing is stunningly beautiful from beginning to end.  The band will release Desire Lines on June 4 via 4AD.

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.
