Quickdraw: Honeyblood, Aan, Tony Molina, Dirty Projectors, Mono

September 26, 2016

Music!  Enjoy.

:Honeyblood – Sea Hearts:  I’m all about this new one from Honeyblood.  As its press release says, it’s “dangerously addictive”.  More please.  Babes Never Die is due out October 28 via FatCat.

:Aan – Hollywood Buyout:  Aan have apparently been around for about a decade, but this is my first time hearing them.  I like frontman Bud Wilson’s voice.  Anyone got an old song or two that they’d like to recommend?  Dada Distractions is due out November 18 via Party Damage Records.

:Tony Molina – Hung Up On The Dream:  Here’s the latest single from the great Tony Molina.  It’s got a pretty sound, but the lyrics are a real bummer.  The Confront The Truth EP is due out October 28 via Slumberland.

:Dirty Projectors – Keep Your Name:  Oof.  This sure is one sad (and weird-sounding) break up track.  Regardless, it’s the Dirty Projectors first new tune since 2012, and I think it’s great to have them back.  No word yet on a new album.

:Mono – Requiem For Hell (Single Edit):  Mono’s new album will be here in a couple of weeks, and I’m so excited for it.  They just speak to me.  Side note, put on headphones for this post rock beauty.  Requiem For Hell is due out October 14 via Temporary Residence LTD.

Quickdraw: Bleached, Spider Bags, White Fence, Honeyblood, Menace Beach

June 23, 2014

0 Comments

Music!  Enjoy.

:Bleached – For The Feel:  Bleached have a three-song 7″ on the way, and this is the title track.  Because it’s just what they do better than most and there’s no reason to change anything, it’s a really catchy surf rock number.  The For The Feel 7″ is due out on September 16 via Dead Oceans.

:Spider Bags – Japanese Vacation:  I’m quickly figuring out that the fellas behind Spider Bags really know how to write a hook.  No wonder Merge recently snatched them up.  The label will release the highly anticipated Frozen Letter on August 5.

:White Fence – Like That:  I’ve long been a fan of White Fence and their lo-fi ways, but I’m sort of excited by the news that Tim Presley (with Ty Segall) opted to step everything up for the new album.  As this song shows, a cleaner sound actually fits the act well.  To The Recently Found Innocent is due out July 22 via Drag City.

:Honeyblood – Super Rat:  Shona McVicar and Stina Tweeddale are the duo behind Honeyblood, and this song features them being really pissed with someone.  “I will hate you forever/You really do disgust me.”  Props to them on the grudge-holding front.  The band will release their self titled album on July 15 via FatCat Records.

:Menace Beach – Tennis Court:  There’s a distinct 90s rock vibe all over this track from Menace Beach, and I’m really digging it.  I’d like to hear more from the band as soon as possible.  Look for the Tennis Court/Lowtalking 7″ on September 1 via Memphis Industries.

Quickdraw: Honeyblood, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Chad VanGaalen, Shannon And The Clams, How To Dress Well

April 7, 2014

0 Comments

Music!  Enjoy.

:Honeyblood – Killer Bangs:  And with this track Glasgow’s Honeyblood have delivered to me a new slice of 90s-enthused rock to leave on repeat.  That’s true friendship, people.  Here’s hoping their upcoming album has more of the same.  FatCat will release the band’s self titled effort on July 15.

:Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Coming Down (Featuring Matt Berninger):  CYHSY are an act that I have only ever sort of liked, but I do think this song is really good.  Matt Berninger’s contribution sounds great alongside Alec Ounsworth’s nasaly voice.  Only Run will be released by the band on June 3.

:Chad VanGaalen – Monster:  The world needs weird/interesting artists like Chad VanGaalen, so it’s great that he’s readied a new album.  This song should flood your brain with all sorts of images.  Have fun.  Look for Sub Pop to put out Shrink Dust on April 19.

:Shannon And The Clams – Mama:  If raw and retro is what you’re looking for today, then you can’t go wrong with this new one from Shannon And The Clams.  Just know it’s going to for sure get lodged in your head for a while.  The band’s split 7″ with Guantanamo Baywatch is currently available for purchase over at Suicide Squeeze.

:How To Dress Well – Repeat Pleasure:  I imagine most of you are already on the How To Dress Well bandwagon, but if for some reason you’re not then this stellar pop song will probably convince you to find a seat.  What Is This Heart? is due out June 23 via Weird World.
