Quickdraw: Thurston Moore, Half Japanese, Deerhoof, Joanna Gruesome, Charli XCX

Music!  Enjoy.

:Thurston Moore – The Best Day:  While I would have preferred to get a another Chelsea Light Moving album, I’m still excited about a new Thurston Moore solo effort (his first since 2011′s Demolished Thoughts).  This single is a spectacularly crafted piece of alt-rock.  The Best Day is expected out on October 21 via Matador.

:Half Japanese – Our Love:  I’ve really been loving the new Half Japanese tracks (listen to another one).  What’s especially crazy is that they’ve been around for 40 years and haven’t put out an album since 2001′s Hello, and yet they still sound more hip and enthusiastic than most bands out there.  Look for Overjoyed on September 2 via Joyful Noise.

:Deerhoof – Exit Only:  Here’s a loud, wonderfully weird new one from the magnificent Deerhoof.  Their albums are always a fun/intersting time, so I’m looking forward to the new one (13th overall, yeah?).  La Isla Bonita is due out November 4 via Polyvinyl.

:Joanna Gruesome – Psykick Espionage:  Joanna Gruesome just announced a split with Trust Fund, and now they’ve lined up another with Perfect Pussy.  This track is rather manic, but I think that’s what makes it great.  You can expect the 7″ to be released at some point later this year via Captured Tracks/Slumberland/Fortuna Pop.

:Charli XCX – Break The Rules:  And so we come full circle with the spiritual successor to Icona Pop’s I Love It arriving from the girl that was featured on it – Charli XCX.  Consider me curious to see what else is on her upcoming LP.  Sucker is due on October 22 via Neon Gold/Atlantic.  See her at Emo’s on October 17.

Quickdraw: Roses, Literature, Half Japanese, Perfume Genius, Whirr

Music!  Enjoy.

:Roses – It’s Over:  Abe Vigoda is something that is no more, but at least you can still get music from one of their former members, Juan Velazquez, who is the main brain in Roses.  I’m really liking the slightly new wave, but mostly 90s pop vibe that this track is packing.  The Dreamlover EP is due out August 5 via Group Tightener.

:Literature – The English Softhearts:  Formerly of Austin, Literature now reside in Philadelphia and are the latest addition to the just-about-perfect Slumberland roster.  Good for them!  This is one pretty pop tune.  Look for Chorus to be set free on August 19.

:Half Japanese – In Its Pull:  I’m not sure why, but many years ago I went through a phase where I would listen to Half Japanese’s Put Some Sugar On It over and over.  I can’t say I feel as obsessive about this track, but it’s still a more than solid slab of indie rock.  The band will release Overjoyed on September 2 via Joyful Noise.

:Perfume Genius – Queen:  If Perfume Genius’ upcoming LP isn’t on your list of things that you can’t wait for, then expect this impeccable song to make you want to put it there.  By the way, I highly recommend that you slap on some nice headphones before hitting play.  Too Bright is due out September 22 via Matador.

:Whirr – Mumble:  This could just be me, but I sort of love the meta-ness of a shoegaze band having a song called Mumble.  What a perfect match.  Whirr will release Sway on September 23 via Graveface.  See the band at Holy Mountain on September 6.
