Quickdraw: Courtney Barnett, The King Khan And BBQ Show, Quarterbacks, Lower Dens, Fred Thomas

February 2, 2015


Music!  Enjoy.

:Courtney Barnett – Pedestrian At Best:  I can’t stop listening to this whip-smart new one from Courtney Barnett.  I won’t at all be surprised if her upcoming album ends up dominating me.  Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit Out will be released on March 24 via Mom + Pop.

:The King Khan And BBQ Show – Illuminations:  Whenever a King Khan And The BBQ Show press release pops up in my inbox, I get excited.  Sure, there’s no information in these emails that’s actually useful, but they’re funny and tend to contain really jangly, awesome tunes.  Bad News Boys is due out February 24 via In The Red.

:Quarterbacks – Knicks:  I think I’m finally ready to jump on Quarterbacks‘ bandwagon, and it’s all because of this 55 second track.  It just oozes charm.  The band’s self titled album is due out February 10 via Team Love/Double Whammy.

:Lower Dens – To Die In L.A.:  Before you hit play on this Lower Dens track, slap on some headphones.  It’s a wonderfully produced effort, and you should lets its various layers exclusively fill your head.  Escape From Evil will be released on March 31 via Ribbon Music.

:Fred Thomas – Bad Blood:  Fred Thomas (from Saturday Looks Good To Me) just signed to Polyvinyl.  This first single off of his solo debut is rambly as hell and perhaps a bit pretentious, but I dig it.  All Are Saved is due out April 7.

Quickdraw: The King Khan And BBQ Show, Viet Cong, Screaming Females, The Dodos, Twerps

January 12, 2015


Music!  Enjoy.

:The King Khan And BBQ Show – Alone Again:  It took an eternity, but The King Khan And BBQ Show have officially reunited and readied a new album.  If we’re lucky, all of the songs it will be as good as this jangly retro rocker.  Bad News Boys is due out February 24 via In The Red Records.

:Viet Cong – Silhouettes:  As of right now, my money is on Viet Cong to deliver the first great album of 2015.  They’ve got a really fantastic Wolf Parade-esque thing going on.  Look for the band’s self titled full length on January 20 via Jagjaguwar.

:Screaming Females – Criminal Image:  Here’s a meaty single from Screaming Females.  I’ll be really surprised if their upcoming album doesn’t bring in an enormous amount of new fans for them.  Rose Mountain is due out February 24 via Don Giovanni.

:The Dodos – Retriever:  San Francisco’s The Dodos will soon put out their sixth full length.  SIXTH.  Where did all the time go?  In any case, this track is a more than solid slice of indie rock.  The band will release Individ on January 27 via Polyvinyl.  See them at the Parish on February 18.

:Twerps – I Don’t Mind:  I love this 90s slacker rock throwback from Twerps.  Their upcoming LP wasn’t really on my radar, but it’s definitely there now.  Range Anxiety is due out January 27 via Merge.
