Quickdraw: White Lung, Nothing, Colleen Green, Moonface And Siinai, Haybaby

April 4, 2016


Music!  Enjoy.

:White Lung – Kiss Me When I Bleed:  I’m really loving White Lung these days (check out their other recently released single here).  Their decision to move to a cleaner, more modern sound was smart.  Paradise is due out May 6 via Domino.  See the band at Sidewinder on July 13.

:Nothing – Eaten By Worms:  ”The song is very much about being in pain and dancing with the feverish curiosity of whether this life is anymore significant then what comes after or what came before. It’s very much about letting go.” – Domenic Palermo of Nothing.  Well there’s that.  Now take this slow burner and have a great Monday!  Tired Of Tomorrow is due out May 13 via Relapse.  See the band at Sidewinder on June 28.

:Colleen Green – Between The Lines:  Colleen Green has a new EP that she’s describing as being “Ramones-Core”.  I guess I hear that here?  Either way, I’m into it.  Colleen’s self titled EP will be out May 13 via Infinity Cat.

:Moonface and Siinai – Risto’s Riff:  Moonface (aka Spencer Krug from Wolf Parade) has teamed up with Finland’s own Siinai for a new full length.  This first single is a legit rocker, and I can’t wait to hear whatever else the two acts have cooked up.  My Best Human face is due out June 3 via Jagjaguwar.

:Haybaby – Joke-Rope:  Here’s a rad new one from Haybaby.  The more I listen to it, the more I fall in love with frontwoman Leslie Hong’s moody voice.  The Blood Harvest EP is due out April 29 via Tiny Engines.

Quickdraw: EL VY, Nocando, Haybaby, Torres, Tortoise

October 12, 2015


Music!  Enjoy.

:EL VY – Paul Is Alive:  Here’s the latest gem from EL VY, which is Matt Berninger (The National) and Brent Knopf (Menomena, Ramona Falls)Hard not to have super high expectations for their upcoming LP.  Return To The Moon is due out October 30 via 4AD.

:Nocando – Alaska:  I’ve been pretty hung up on this track for the last couple of weeks or so.  Nocando tosses out a variety of nice quips in it.  By the way, this is a one-off, so grab it while you can.

:Haybaby – Elevator Song:  This song from Haybaby is fantastic.  It doesn’t have much sound-wise that you haven’t heard before, but its craftily assembled arrangement does manage to make it feel fresh.  Sleepy Kids is due out October 23 via Tiny Engines.

:Torres – Special (Garbage Cover):  Torres has been out on the road with Garbage (it’s the 20th anniversary of their debut LP), and in celebration of that she put out this cover.  I think it might be the best thing she’s ever done.

:Tortoise – Gesceap:  2009 was the year that Tortoise last put out an album.  Good to have them back.  This new single of theirs deserves the best pair of headphones you can give it.  The Catastrophist is due out January 22 via Thrill Jockey.
